Brooklyn Youth Sports Club uses basketball as a vehicle to inspire youth to fulfill not only their physical potential but also their academic, social and personal goals. But while basketball serves as the hook to bring students to the program, no student enters the court without first having attended the education component, working daily with tutors on homework and college preparation. The program can boast that 100% of its seniors graduate and enter college.
- In 2015 BYSC expanded to offer programs in four new sites around Brooklyn.
- During the 2015-16 school year BYSC will serve 200 students in Brooklyn.
- 98% of BKYSC participants live in low-income communities in Brooklyn.
