There are 8 Program Pillars of Holiday HOOPS & ARTs. The program areas are as follows:
Four boys and girls teams ranging from 8 through 18, primarily in basketball, with a track and field team coming soon. Teams compete locally and travel nationally in various tournaments and have received several awards.
Teaching the values of teamwork and sportsmanship through our programs, furthering communication skills, and holding workshops and training to solidify these skills.
Focusing on music, theater, dance, visual, and communication arts, currently seeking funding to launch a Pop-Up ART Camp in Summer 2023 and build permanent programming.
Our former players, alums, Board, and Advisory Council members have become the best of society. In giving back to the community, we are creating programs that allow a buddy and mentoring relationship for youth with early career and seasoned professionals.
Community Outreach & Impact
We are nothing without community and our environment. We will instill community engagement values in our youth and build programs that volunteer with local nonprofits and businesses to give back to those around us.
Life Skills & Family Services
The family unit is core to our mission. It formulates how a child develops and grows. By building the family unit with programs on communication, support, and generational wealth, we will empower future generations.
Academics & Scholarships
Some children want to attend college but cannot afford it. We plan to build scholarship programs to support those who are excelling in academics to do so. We will partner with trade organizations to create economic opportunities for those who do not wish to go to college—supporting pay for kids to learn these skills and develop our workforce.
Health & Counseling
A healthy child becomes a healthy adult. Health disparities are connected to socioeconomic and racial status. Holiday HOOPS & ARTs will create programs to support children and their families with mental, emotional, and physical well-being, health services, and counseling.
