The program emphasizes the importance of effective teamwork and practice, to illustrate it's connection to supporting educational growth. We aim for our students to achieve their personal goals while supporting those of others around them. Program participants learn how to develop S.M.A.R.T goals, drive for results, and implement best practices for deep focus through the use of education and sports.

Our staff serve as mentors to the students, supporting them on an individual or group basis. We promote a safe space and open communication for those that may need help and typically do not seek help through traditional means. The Books-b4-Ball program provides mentorship and a village – reinforcing the importance of education and a having positive goal-oriented approach to what obstacles they may face daily.
