This mini camp is the beginning of a series of free events that will take place at various schools and recreation centers in the New Jersey, Philadelphia and Memphis communities.

The primary objective however, is the message that Jones will deliver to these young people about the importance of education, and remaining focused and positive to reach their goals.
