What is the Muhammad Ali Center UCREW Program?

UCREW is a ground-breaking social enterprise program of the Muhammad Ali Center available to high school students. The program offers a unique opportunity for students to not only learn about social entrepreneurship, but to work in teams to develop an actual social enterprise. During the school year, students will meet twice monthly to explore the issue of “poverty” in their communities and to reflect on ways to combat local poverty through creative business endeavors. By the end of the program, students will have conceptualized, produced, marketed, and launched a small social enterprise business.

Erica Talbot
MACCS Member 2010-12

Current Position: Currently, I work at a gymnastics facility as Director of the Class Program and as Assistant Events Coordinator. I am one of two coaches that instruct the higher level gymnasts transitioning them into the competitive team and starting this summer I have accepted a competitive team coach position in addition to the other titles!

 

Impact: The Muhammad Ali center ALWAYS made me feel that I had a purpose, especially one to serve those who are not able to do so themselves. The center compelled me to find what is most important in life, and even further, why I hold those values. Muhammad Ali showed me that while being on the fence on certain topics is inevitable, having bold conviction for your beliefs leaves no room for doubt. The center taught me to stand up for what I am willing to work for and to stand firm with my method of decision-making.

I will forever love to take the tour through the center learning how Muhammad Ali became the greatest 🙂
