Life And Basketball (LAB)
LAB’s Mission is to increase opportunities for underserved youth to succeed. Using basketball as a transformative tool, LAB’s programs focus on improving academic performance, social and emotional skills, attitudes, and health/fitness, while at the same time demonstrating the importance of community engagement. Our Vision is for all children to have equal opportunities and the social and emotional competence necessary to face the challenges of life. We hope to be able to reach more and more children using our unique methodology and four pillar curriculum that acknowledges the advantages of both classroom and sports based strategies to build social emotional competence and academic performance and combines them both.
