We lost our beloved Issa Jeylani on July 22, 2022. He was a 15-year-old Hilltop Tigers soccer champion who died due to gang and gun violence. He was simply playing soccer in his neighborhood We do not want to lose anymore of our youth. We are fundraising to open an indoor facility to keep our children safe and sound year-round.
There are about 10,000 children at risk of gang and gun violence in the Hilltop area. This center will provide a safe haven to hundreds of them each year. Our Hilltop Tigers Soccer Club and other programs continue to provide our youth a safe and compelling alternative to gangs, guns, violence, drugs and human trafficking on the westside of Columbus. We empower them with education, nutritious food, counseling and other kinds of support.
MY Project USA is a national initiative to protect & empower youth, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization. All proceeds help at-risk children and families in underserved communities.
