Fast Forward is the title of my Gold Award Project. For my project, I decided to help out the MLK Youth Center for children aged 5-13 in Bridgewater, NJ. I believe that it is important that students are not only book smart, but that they must be street smart. I plan to host presentations and events for the children at the MLK center to teach them important life skills that are necessary for succeeding in the future. I think it is important that kids learn skills and information important for the "real world" at a younger age so they get a head start and potentially "Fast Forward" into their future.





Along with my presentations, I plan to supply the youth center with items needed in order for it to prosper. I plan to fill 100 backpacks with school supplies for the kids that attend the center. I also plan to provide the center with new materials for their kitchen, such as pots and pans because they feed the children hot meals each day. Lastly, I would like to give the center more snacks and food for their pantry.
