The3PointFoundation teaches and mentors urban boys to prepare them for success in academics and life. We concentrate on reading, writing, mathematics and character development for underserved youth who have demonstrated commitment, discipline and enthusiasm by playing in organized basketball programs. We provide the support and resources for our boys to obtain powerful educational opportunities. On April 25th the foundation will be holding a youth basketball clinic in conjunction with the youth violence summit being held by Joan Arches Professor of Human Services and Youth Work, College of Public and Community Service Program Coordinator of Human Services and Youth Work.
