The 2nd Annual “You Got Schooled” (YGS)

College Scholarship 3-on-3 Girls’ Basketball Tournament

Newark, New Jersey, USA -On Sunday, September 6th 2009 United Initiatives for Peace in partnership with the City of Newark Department of Recreation and Cultural Affairs hosted the 2nd Annual “You Got Schooled” tournament at Central High School in Newark, NJ.

For two consecutive years, Religious Youth Service has been a part of the “You Got Schooled” tournament by conducting a Peace Mosaic project on site. The Mosaic is created by all YGS players, coaches, and fans. Together everyone is encouraged to put their “peace” in. The mosaic represents a vision of peace and community unity.

The event offers an alternative means to earn college scholarship funds and promotes the importance of higher education and community activism for inner city girls. This year, $7,000 was awarded to 17 girls from the Greater Newark Area, bringing our 2 year total to $20,000 of awarded scholarship funds.
