Making an impactful difference in Chicago's youths is within reach.

Our mission

Decrease violence, improve the social and emotional conditions, and provide financial opportunities among the youth in Chicago's South Shore community

Our goals

• Reduce youth violence using a sports-based youth development model.
• Improve youth's physical health, athletic and academic skills.
• Provide cultural and community enrichment.

  • Help children

    We target at-risk youth, specifically those that have trouble with their academic performance or behavior in and out of school.

  • SPORTS BASED YOUTH DEVELOPMENT

    Youth who participate in organized sports have significantly improved outcomes in discipline, self-respect, teamwork, healthy habits, emotion management, and healthy relationships with peers and authority figures.

  • Opportunity

    Provide socialization and character development that are critical to reducing violent behavior or violence victimization.
