INFORMATION SHEET

STIGMA?

stig•ma:  1. sign of social unacceptability: the shame or disgrace attached to something regarded as socially unacceptable.  Stigma is a Greek word that in its origins referred to a type of marking or tattoo that was cut or burned into the skin of criminals, slaves, or traitors in order to visibly identify them as blemished or morally polluted persons. These individuals were to be avoided or shunned, particularly in public places.

Social stigma is the extreme disapproval of (or discontent with) a person or group on socially characteristic grounds that are perceived, and serve to distinguish them, from other members of a society.

 

Change begins with each one of us!

Positive Youth Development

Pyne Poynt Documentary explores the North Camden Little League  playing a vital role in creating change in the  community of North Camden by bringing families, coaches, and children of all ages together. PYNE POYNT is about more than the power of sports to help children rise above poverty. It’s where the phrase “hitting it out of the park” takes on a new meaning.” Click on the link below to watch the extended trailer of the documentary and learn more information about the North Camden Little League also located in our Super Summer Directory.
