The programs developed and managed by the Foundation are designed to help develop and expose athletic talents and other skill sets so they may attain athletic and academic achievements, high school diplomas, and college scholarships. The impact of these programs has demonstrated and improved our youth’s attitudes, self esteem, confidence, grades, relationships, respect for peers and elders as well as reducing crime in the community.
Working with businesses and professionals in our community, we offer Life Skills Days – educational programs focused on character, college and career development. The mission is to inspire students to achieve personal and academic excellence. The experiences vary and include workshops, guest speakers, and team-building activities.
Our Fundamental Basketball Camps are community-based youth sports camps established to design and empower youth through sports. The purpose and vision is to help educate and instruct youth on the fundamentals of basketball and how that plays into developing essential life skills.
Athlete Connections Foundation travel teams are community-based sports teams made up of middle and high school athletes. In addition to enhancing and developing their athletic skills, this program provides exposure to college coaches, higher education opportunities and athletic scholarships.
