Givers and Growers! We're on a big mission and we're excited that you're here to help!

Our mission is simple, yet transformational - we’re here to boost the mental, emotional and physical health of thousands of K-5th graders across the country, and specifically with this volunteer opportunity - the students in your town!

How will we impact thousands of students in your town?

We will bring our hit virtual assembly, that we’ve brought to 17+ states serving 15,000+ students, to ALL the elementary schools in your community with one giant event!

With our virtual assemblies, we've served hundreds and even thousands of students all at once with high energy music, movement, and of course motivational mental health messages and tools.

The schools we've partnered with love how easy it is to throw us up on the projector, take a break, and let us do the teaching!

I invite you to check out the kids in action and feedback from the teachers in the videos on our assembly webpage. Seeing how we combine mental health fundamentals with basketball is much more informational and inspirational than anything we could write here.

How can you help bring this experience to thousands of kids in your town?

Simply put, the only thing we need to make these assemblies happen is funding.

That said, if you fundraise $1,000 from friends and businesses in your network, we will get in touch with all the local elementary schools in your town and invite them to join a virtual, city-wide assembly guaranteed to boost student mental health awareness and Social Emotional Learning (SEL) engagement.

For example, if you want to help bring the Give N' Grow Experience to Pittsburgh, this would be your process.

1. You'll contact us through this platform
2. We'll share a link for you to sign up to be a fundraiser
3. You'll sign up in less then 3 minutes
4. You'll fundraise $1,000 whatever way you'd like - through social media, texts, emails, phone calls, and if you're old fashioned you can go door to door!
5. We'll reach out to all the schools in your town, invite them, onboard them, and serve them with this transformational experience!

By the way, because of your fundraising efforts, this experience will be completely free of charge to all the schools!

This is a HUGE support because many schools have been experiencing budget cuts and don't have the funding to prioritize their student's mental health.

We can't wait to see you turning up, dancing, celebrating, balling and meditating with us and the hundreds of kids we'll be impacting!

This Is Bigger Than One Event!

By helping us as a fundraiser, you'll not only be bringing to life this educational and motivational event. You'll also be helping us to create new relationships with new schools and therefore opening the door for more assemblies with those schools!

Maybe even an annual partnership where we'll serve their students every month for an ongoing impact!

Anything is possible once we get that first assembly under our belt. We've seen it happen, we've done it, and through your fundraising efforts, you're planting the seed for more experiences for the kids in your town and beyond!

We're so thankful for you, your support of Give N' Grow, and for your generous and caring heart.

Please reach out if you have any questions!

Thank you!

Mission Statement

Give N' Grow Basketball (GNG) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that uses basketball to elevate the physical and mental health of youth in K-5th grade. ‚Äč

Description

GNG recognizes that depression, anxiety, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and teen suicide are increasing worldwide, which is why elevating the mental health of adolescents in a productive, uplifting way is GNG’s utmost priority.

GNG has consulted with a bevy of experts in the fields of sports psychology, developmental psychology, childhood education, and therapy and life coaching to ensure that its curriculum integrates the most essential and effective mental health skills for K-8th graders to develop during adolescence: mindfulness and social and emotional learning (SEL).

GNG has combined these key mental health skills with the most popular youth sport in the United States, basketball, to ensure that students are engaged in its programming.

To execute their mission GNG hosts live and virtual events - including holistic health assemblies and clinics - to immediately impact K-5th graders and inspire them to join our weekly virtual WIN Workouts for an ongoing holistic health impact.
