BKYSC: More than great basketball...

OUR MISSION

To enable and support inner-city Brooklyn youth to accomplish their goal of college enrollment.  To use basketball as the vehicle to engage student-athletes to achieve academic excellence. To instill values of perseverance, self esteem, integrity, and hard work and empower student-athletes to be leaders on and off the court.

THE CHALLENGE

Less than 57% of Brooklyn students graduate from High School.  100% of our seniors graduate from High School.  Out of these seniors, 100% make it to college or post graduate programs.  Making sure our students excel – that is our challenge.

WHY BASKETBALL

Basketball at BKYSC serves as a hook to engage student-athletes in our educational programs – it is the catalyst that inspires BKYSC student-athletes to take an interest in their academic progress succeed.

MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Donations go to funding tutors, coaches, text books, equipment, facilities, & tournaments.  All of these things help students involved with BKYSC excel on the court, in the classroom, at home and in their daily lives.
