Basketball has been a huge asset to us, in building relationships with the kids around something that they enjoy. Sports can and always has been a great teacher, if played correctly. We use basketball as a way to gather, love, and teach our young men how to be sustainable, loving, and responsible humans. When attending our program, we have fun, but we also have sessions on financial literacy, healthy relationships, and goal setting. Having been in the community going on 8 years, we use this time to address legitimate needs that our kids have. Our program is on Wednesday nights at a church in uptown Charlotte, please reach out if you’re interested in becoming a volunteer.
