LG's dream was to do something that would be a part of the revitalization of this great city.  Larry incorporated, one of America’s favorite pastimes, his love for the game of basketball to garner the involvement and interest of area residents to spread the message about “Stopping the Violence.”   This message was exemplified by LG’s actions and deeds. The lesson that we are teaching during the Larry Gaines Stop the Violence Youth Basketball Tournament is only part our mission.

LGSTV is a nonprofit organization focusing efforts to increase the peace in the city of Camden, by mentoring to our youth population and inspiring individuals in our community to become united and involved in issues which concern all of us. We are motivated by our belief that service to our residents can have a  positive affect on their lives in a multitude of ways and that our contribution of engaging the populace is necessary for a stronger community and vibrant and prosperous city. Our aim is to elevate the spirits, empower and engage all citizens in order to bring about positive change in our city. Our working group has proposed a strategy for approaching some challenges within our community, such as education, where the graduation rate in Camden, NJ is at an all time low of 51%, while unemployment is at an all time high of 19.6%.
