The mission is to take action to help save our youth through mentoring and developmental programs geared around sports, nutrition and academics. MOB will develop programs to engage, empower and motivate our youth to become invaluable members of society. MOB will cultivate future leaders who understand the importance of paying it forward and continuing to build a legacy for the next generation.
Their strategy is to establish strategic partnerships with Amateur Athlete Union (AAU), educational institutions, community centers and law enforcement to build bridges and create supportive environments. They will host outreach events, networking events and fundraising basketball tournaments. As well as implement sports training and tutoring programs, and leverage active parents in the community as mentors. They need the support from the community to accomplish these goals.
