Keeping the Youth Active

Following the events that occurred during last month's shooting of Corky Row, various stakeholders in Fall River have been discussing how to improve the situation in various neighborhoods and to give young people activities to do this summer.


Minority Outreach Coordinator for Fall River Housing Authority as well as CDA, Bobby Bailey, stated that involving the school department and parents is critical, referring to the youth of Fall River as “our future” and that education is the reflection of the city of Fall River.


Bailey told WSAR that young people need structure this summer and that the city needs to work within itself as well as with each other. Discussions about programs involving arts and sports have been placed thus far.
