Elite Youth Program – Don’t Start Campaign

Don’t Start is a program under the auspices of Carl Cannon and the Elite Youth Program. The message of the Don’t Start song and video is- Don’t Start down the path of guns, gangs, drugs etc, stay in school and learn to be a leader. We feature positive youth activities and organizations in Peoria that work with our youth. We focus on mentors and role models in the community, and there is mention of various occupations in the song. We also portray the consequences of going down the wrong path.‚Äč
