“We Got This” is a program based out of Milwaukee, WI.  Started on 9th and Ring, this program began with a crew of young boys cleaning up their neighborhood and learning about gardening.  The program grew each Saturday as boys came out to assist in duties and were each subsequently paid 20 dollars for their efforts.  The program has continued to grow and each week during the summer young boys continue to make their way to 9th and Ring for cleanup and gardening.  Upon arrival, the boys are met by positive role models from the community to assist with their efforts.  “We Got This” is making efforts to put the “neighbor” back in the “hood” recreating neighborhoods.

    Words from kids on the block

    • Saturday mornings is a blessing for every kid to come out and enjoy themselves and have fun and stay out of trouble so they don’t get locked up somewhere.

    • The reason why I do this is because when I ask 48 African American Boys and ask how many of them never knew their father and 38 boys raise their hands… There is something wrong with those numbers.

      We got to save these boys and these boys are becoming Great Black Men.
