Dayton Dragons to Honor The Victory Project Youth Program as 'Community All-Star'


credit:

An Ohio nonprofit that helps at-risk young men find work and stay out of trouble has been named a "Community All-Star" by a professional baseball team, the Dayton Dragons.

The Victory Project is a non-profit that has "drastically altered the trajectory of the social economy of our community" since it opened in 2009, according to the Dragons, who will honor the group during a special inning break at Friday's game.

The Victory Project offers a six-day-a-week "sanctuary" where young men between the ages of 12 and 18 can access " structured physical activity, a consistent meal, brotherhood and friendship, guidance, and the opportunity to work," the team says, per WHIO.

The group then competes for jobs on various projects that pay $10 an hour.

And once they're hired, they want to stay.

The Victory Project is debt-free, thanks to private donors and funds from the work projects arm of the nonprofit, Victory Improvement Projects.

The organization plans to open a new campus in 2023.
