The objective of the event is to help in resolving the issue of black boys. The goal of the UNNIK's event is to reach out to at least 30 boys, aged nine to 15, in Knoxville and surrounding areas. During the conference the team will connect with the participants with local professional men, who will facilitate the workshops. Topics for this year's event include 'The Art of Self Defense/ Let's Get Fit,' 'Know Your Rights,' 'Boys to Men,' and 'Teen Talk: What's On Your Mind.'
Reggie Jenkin, Founder and Director of UNNIK Academy said, "We need support from people all over the US. All donations are appreciated and acknowledged because we cannot operate a successful program without the assistance of others." He further added, "We all know that black boys are in trouble, there are several issues affecting their lives on big level. So we need to come together and take proper action to stop it. With our event, we hope to find successful ways."
UUNIK Academy has also launched a campaign on indiegogo.com to get support from viewers from across the world. The goal of the campaign is to collect $1,500 with adequate community support. As a donor, individuals help cover expenses of this annual conference, which provides meals, door prizes, T-shirts, educational supplies, and other tools needed for good youth participation.
