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.
