The Future of the RFK Stadium-Armory Campus

CLICK HERE TO RSVP FOR APRIL'S CITYWIDE COMMUNITY MEETING ON 4/30!

After extensive planning, outreach, public input and involvement, Events DC is proud to present two concepts for the RFK Stadium-Armory Campus. Our vision for the Campus’ future is to create a revitalized site that celebrates its iconic beauty and history – while also acting as a first-class example of urban living that can attract residents and visitors and at the same time maintain a strong local identity.

Acting as a catalyst for the city, the RFK Campus future project will also make a substantial economic impact on the District, by reinvesting into the city through job opportunities, youth programs, local business development and ample community benefits and neighborhood serving amenities for residents to enjoy.

Community Spotlight: NOMIS Youth Network

Located in the Benning Road community, NOMIS Youth Network is an after-school boxing program that strives to prevent juvenile delinquency. The program teaches Olympic-style boxing skills in small groups or individually, primarily to youth and young adults, ages 12 through 24. These boxing fundamentals include heavy bag hitting, speed bag work, and defensive and offensive boxing skills. The program also sets up participants to spar with others of their weight and ability, and provides other conditioning such as strength training, jumping rope, and running.

Youth at NOMIS are coached by Robert Simon III, who grew up in the Benning Road community and founded his boxing gym with the goal to use it to keep local youth out of the prison system. His program offers mentorship and the chance to develop self-discipline and self-worth. Plus, program participants learn enough about boxing to compete at a local and national level. This month, we spoke to Robert Simon III, M.A., Executive Director to learn more about how NOMIS is serving the D.C. community.
