Thanks for checking out my fundraising page! New Heights is an awesome non-profit dedicated to helping inner-city kids meet their full potential. Started as a pilot in 2001 by a NYC public school teacher and basketball coach, the program first served kids in Harlem, Washington Heights and the Bronx. Since then, it has grown to a city-wide program that offers students academic support through afterschool, weekend and summer programming. Basketball remains a key engagment tool for New Heights students. It helps them learn more about themselves and feel successful as they meet personal goals and develop leadership skills; it also offers them the opportunity to learn about educational opportunities, new places and people as they travel to tournaments at colleges and cities throughout the country.
I really believe in this organzation and the positive impact it's had on the lives of the youth it serves. For more info, including a video where the kids tell you why New Heights matters to them:
