Mission Statement

To provide 'at risk’ youth in middle and continuing education schools a free, three-month organized sports program with a reading-writing component that instills our four pillar values of dignity, integrity, respect and honor throughout their experience.

Description

Affirmative Athletics sponsors a three month annual basketball and flag-football program that runs through the spring and fall, respectively. Since 2005, the program has mentored over four-hundred incarcerated youth in various Los Angeles probation facilities (Camp Miller, Holton, Afflerbaugh-Paige).

For the first time in the program's history, the fall Affirmative Flag Football League (AFFL) and the spring Affirmative Athletics Basketball League (AABL) will be working with students in eight Los Angeles continuing education schools instead of the juvenile halls.
