Our Kids Program
The Our Kids Program is dedicated to making a difference in the community by mentoring young men in middle through high school. The program uses African American police officers and other role models in the community to reach out, work with, and provide positive influences in the lives young African American men. Sgt. Willie Davis is the program coordinator and he and other volunteers try to be involved in every facet of their life. Not only do they provide something to do on Saturdays, but they also visit them at school and home in an effort to get to know and reach out to the kids. The work that Sgt. Davis and the rest of the men at the Our Kids Program are doing is why they are Difference Makers in the fight for Victory Over Violence.
The Difference Makers award is done in conjunction with the Victory Over Violence campaign launched by KARK Channel 4 and Fox 16. Once a month, Rainwater, Holt & Sexton will present a $1,000 donation to an organization that is fighting violence in the community and has established themselves as a true Difference Maker. The partnership goal is to create a safer Central Arkansas by uniting community groups that are promoting change through improvements in education, jobs, mentoring, and hunger.
