Mentor participating in Hoop Hero team building activity


Camp Hoop Heroes (HH) is a part of After-School All-Stars Sports as a Hook (SAAH) program and is a free, week-long, intensive youth leadership and mentoring camp which leverages the game of basketball to provide students with mentors who educate them about high school, college and career opportunities. HH is a response to the need for young people have to connect with a caring adult in an authentic way as well as an opportunity to play. ASAS students often tell us that they sign up for the activities, but they stay for the caring adult relationships they develop with staff and mentors. For low-income children living in Chicago, there is a multitude of obstacles to play as well as the opportunity to connect with a caring adult.

HH has five components:

1) Mentoring
2) Nightly basketball drills and games
3) Structured leadership activities
4) Group dinners
5) Career guest speakers
We are seeking local professionals (all industries welcomed) who can coach students both on and off the court, teaching youth game fundamentals as well as facilitating meaningful discussions about the pursuit of their academic and career goals.
