Many of America's inner-city youth are plagued by inactivity, unhealthy dietary habits and violence. Back 2 Basics Kids Foundation, Inc. provides an antidote for the sedimentary lifestyle many American children have adopted and provides a healthy alternative to street loitering and negative behavior. Our organization is committed to positively impacting our youth's perspective and exposure when it comes to their emotional, mental, social, and physical well being.
We believe the earlier a child is introduced to athletics, the more he or she will benefit in their level of educational and physical advancement. The overall goal of Back 2 Basics Kids Foundation, Inc. is to increase self esteem, develop athletic and sportsmanship ability, and cultivate positive life skills for at-risk children ages 6 to 18. Our primary objective for the 2010-11 year is to reach 1,500 inner-city youth utilizing our athletic clinics, special events, and developmental programs.
