The Youth Resiliency Institute works with African American children and adults, primarily in Cherry Hill and Albemarle Square. One of its programs is called The Journey Project, which promotes family engagement to help kids improve their performance in school.   The Journey Project also sponsors an African Family Drumming Group.  Cherry Hill residents and drumming group members, Jerry Mayo and his 10-year-old son, join host Tom Hall in the studio with acclaimed drummer and Journey Project teacher MosiahSaleen, and Fanon Hill, the Institute's co-founder and executive director.  Yes, there is drumming!

You can catch a performance by the Journey Project African Family Drumming Group on Monday, November 9  at 4PM in City Hall. 

Host, Midday (M-F 12:00-1:00)
