Books N Basketball

Books & Basketball is a mentoring program providing teenage, urban youth with positive role models, relationships and knowledge from young minority professionals.

Our Program is a two-fold approach.  We reach out to urban, minority youth through the incentive of basketball and leverage it to create and build relationships with young minority professionals. We then, leverage our experiences, both personal and professional to help develop and mentor the kids through engaging topics and discussions. Books and Basketball is geared at developing mind and body. The program provides an avenue for exercise but also focuses on a healthy diet, incorporating a healthy meal at each session.
