Developing Leaders for Generations to Come
Our unique approach has put kids and the community first. We recognize that to make a positive impact we need to provide positive experiences for our youth, while giving back to the communities they are from. Our service model eliminates the financial barrier in youth sports while emphasizing the importance of developing a strong positive community for all.
Health & Well Being
Placing an Emphasis on Physical & Mental Health
Studies have shown the negative affects of kids not getting enough physical activity in their lives. The rate of childhood obesity in marginalized communities is on the rise. Our goal is to help bring those numbers down by providing healthy environments where kids can be physically active and enjoy the beautiful game.
Bridging the Gap
Reducing teen/youth violence involves fostering self-confidence, mentorship, inclusion, education, and career readiness. To achieve this, we can encourage activities that challenge young people, provide positive role models and mentors, create inclusive environments, offer access and resources to support quality education, and build career readiness skills. By combining these elements, we can help young people build a positive sense of self and a brighter future.
