Last month, Beyond Basketball held our Inaugural Youth Summit.
With over 50 children in attendance, youth learned from experts in financial literacy, career readiness and development, and STEM/technology. The youth also were joined by Chris Lea, WRAL Sports Anchor, who discussed the importance of life after sports.
We would like to thank:
The students who joined, providing attention and having fun!
The families entrusting their children with us for the day!
Our 25 volunteers who helped make this possible!
John Chavis Community Center for allowing us to use its space!
Our partners that brought enriching, engaging content! Kim Knox of the YES Consortium, Jasmine Brown of FACTS for Youth, Chijioge "Chi" Nwogu of GameFlo, Chris Lea of WRAL Sports Fan, Coach Jay Coleman of 3D Basketball, Kaniq of Kneaded Massage, the Southeast Raleigh YMCA, and more!
Our lead sponsor for the event, Vaco!
