HOW OUR COMMITMENT TO MENTORING IMPACTS YOUNG PEOPLE
We achieve our purpose by providing programs that engage young people socially through sports, community building and educational experiences. We focus on ways to reach young people first by meeting them on their level. Then we provide teachable experiences and activities to untap their full potential and provide structured guidance and support to help them achieve their goals.
MENTORING THROUGH SPORTS
Sports have an extraordinary influence on the success of athletes beyond the game. We are helping young people develop discipline, accountability, leadership and work ethic that they can apply in their everyday life. We understand basketball is much more than developing skill sets, so we want to create experiences that just can’t be taught in a book or classroom.
MENTORING THROUGH EDUCATION
Our workshops focus on improving social skills, bolstering self-esteem, providing academic and career support and so much more. We seek the mentoring support from former International and NBA athletes, sports, business and health professionals to share their knowledge, stories and experiences to ensure our mentees are getting the best knowledge and resources to propel them forward.
MENTORING THROUGH COMMUNITY SERVICE ACTIVITIES & EVENTS
We’ve considered the love of sports from both the athlete and the fan perspective to develop unique community experiences. Just like a professional basketball contract, whether you are playing internationally or in the NBA, a big part of the job is serving the community. Our program participants become advocates for mental health and wellness. They not only inspire our community by sharing their stories and experiences but also share their time by providing a helping hand.
Our Pro-Club Mentees as part of their pro-experience obligations, also volunteer their time for our events and partnership events to help collect items such as athletic wear, sneakers, basketballs, gift cards, coupons, sports & school supplies and more go toward our “Gifted Bags Campaign Drive” for disadvantaged youth.
NO ONE CAN DO EVERYTHING, BUT EVERYONE CAN DO SOMETHING
We’d love a helping hand at any of our hosted events throughout the summer season. It’s an experience that the whole family will enjoy! If you are interested in volunteering in any capacity, please fill out the application below.
Our community is integral in helping us further our mission by offering as much time, knowledge, tools, resources and inspiration to our youth and young adults. Our hope is that they feel equipped for their journeys ahead. If you are interested in offering mentoring support during our program season, please fill out the application below.
