The Dominican Center partners with area organizations to offer quality services and activities to Amani residents.
Peppnation began offering Rugby to Amani youth at the Dominican Center during the summer of 2015. Children gathered several times a week under the supervision of Coach Brandon Culpepper to learn the game. Coach Culpepper grew up in the neighborhood and does much more than teach the rules of rugby. He cares about the future of the youth and neighborhood. He works to develop the character of each individual child, the team and the neighborhood.
In the fall of 2015, Coach Culpepper moved the Peppnation office to the Dominican Center. Throughout the school year he offers Rugby, youth after school tutoring, and other activities at various locations across the city.
We are pleased to support Peppnation.
