“I walked in these kids’ shoes, I’ve worked through the struggles that they live with on the daily, and I speak their language. Having this platform to reach crowds of kids in similar neighborhoods and situations that I grew up in is why being a STATE PackMan means everything to me.”
- Coach Rick, STATE PackMan, Queens NY
At STATE, our bag drop rallies are at the heart of what we do. They’re led by our PackMen and PackWomen who are experienced child development specialists. Having successfully risen from at-risk neighborhoods themselves, they serve as role models and mentors who deliver a profound message.
