Event Description


VSAAC is inviting you to attend a free coach's / parent's seminar to refresh your knowledge on why athletes may engage in substance use and how you can have the power to influence to keep them safe. Today, our students face many pressures to excel in all areas of their lives. Many times athletes have additional pressures such as: the pressure to win, perform well and maintain a cool image. These pressures whether perceived or real by the athlete can lead them down a destructive and even fatal path, sometimes completely accidental.

VSAAC invites you to join us for a special free two hour breakfast workshop designed for coaches, educators and youth workers. The program features a workshop provided by Donald Hooton of Taylor Hooton Foundation, a nationally renowned organization whose mission is to educate North America's youth and their adult influencers about the dangers of anabolic steroids and Appearance and Performance Enhancing Drugs (APEDs). In addition, VSAAC will present the
"Maximizing Your Role as a Teen Influencer" program which discusses
the epidemic of prescription drug misuse / abuse facing our nation and our teens. VSAAC will provide you with 1 CT State Dept. of Education continuing education unit for attending the session. VSAAC looks forward to meeting and working with you

When “Hoops in the Hood” Became “Hoops in the House”

When Covid-19 came to Chicago, Hoops in the Hood, LISC's long-running basketball-community-building-and-safety program, morphed into the perfect antidote for quarantine stress and boredom. Now, hundreds of kids and their parents across the city are staying active, and logging their exercise minutes, in a true Chicago-style competition between neighborhoods.

Our Communities Need a Marshall Plan

In his latest video message, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones reflects on the disproportionate health and economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on underinvested communities and communities of color, and calls for a 21st-century Marshall Plan—intensive and broad investment that will both help people and enterprises recover, and redress the inequities that set the stage for the fallout of the current crisis.

We Have Reached the Housing Cliff

As we look back on Affordable Housing Month, marked every year in May, it's clear that the need for safe, affordable housing—as well as the threats to providing it—have never been more acute. Denise Scott, LISC's EVP for Programs, makes a compelling case for why, during the Covid era and beyond, we need a robust national plan to safeguard homes for all of our country's vulnerable residents, as well as for the organizations that make those homes possible.
