    What we need are work apprenticeship programs so our youth can develop real-life job skills. I prefer to support that as a priority.

    If a sponsor comes forward with a donation of educational materials, I am sure the Bayside Blazers would welcome including that on the list of prizes. Perhaps, there is someone out there who is in a position to donate. On another note, sports are an integral part of the youths' development. We only have to look at the Olympics and the level to which sportspersons can aspire. Also, kudos to the team in raising its own funds.
