DJ was a  quiet 12 year old when our programs started two 2 years ago. Recently he demonstrated growth by excitedly responding, after a Life Lessons Post-Test, that he was "I'm thinking about doing better and I like it".


That's a big step for some kids and we're seeing more and more awareness from our programs that the American Dream is alive & well.  





We're NOT just about Hiphop Basketball. This thrilling copyrighted new sport played - 3 on 3 on, a short full court, with goals lowered to dunking height is a magnet.
Once engaged participants realize that we're really ALL about teaching children what's expected to achieve success for a better life

LaKeema recently paid us a compliment saying "you guys have help me gain more experience in the career field I am seeking for".
