April 5, 2017 - First Grants to Help Youth Athletes In Need In New Orleans

The Jason Anderson Foundation for Youth Sports awarded the very first grant in the New Orleans community this past week to Project Peaceful Warriors. The award for $500 will help fund yoga teacher training for an outstanding high school student, in order to provide job training, and an opportunity to further expand yoga into the community. Jen Meinen, member of the Foundation Board, and Chelsea Hylton, Founder of Project Peaceful Warriors, were interviewed on the local New Orleans radio station, WWL, at the time of the award presentation. This was an opportunity to build awareness for the Foundation and announce its new Chapter in the New Orleans community, as well as, discuss the partnership with Project Peaceful Warriors through this grant.
