Next Level Basketball Scholarship Fund helps underprivileged kids
A fundraiser at Next Level Basketball is designed to give underprivileged kids an opportunity to enroll in their basketball camp.
The camp was created to teach kids to become skilled winners on the basketball court, but most importantly to become winners in life. Sponsorship of $150.00 will give a youngster between the ages of 10-17 a full scholarship and a opportunity to attend one of our basketball camps. Sponsors will also have the opportunity to place their business contact information on camp tee-shirts or on the Web site.
The candidate must write a one-page paper excluding why they should be considered as a canidate for the scholoarship excluding mentioning basketball ball skills or talents. The first camp of 2013 will be hosted June 17-21 and the second will be hosted August 5-9 in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.
Some of the ideologies that the camp shares with the campers are self improvement, taking responsibility for self and actions, the proper well being of our bodies through physical exercise and proper diets, leadership, and avoiding peer pressure.
The unique edge that Next Level Basketball has is that NBA and college basketball players attend the camp daily to give campers solid advice to become productive citizens. The goal is to sponsor 30 kids this summer that have financial hardships, they may be a product of a unstable home, or they are residing in poverty stricken areas such as Detroit, Flint, Pontiac etc.
This year they will be working with Crossroads for Youth, a non-profit organization located in Oxford, Michigan. This organization is an open campus treatment facility that work with kids from ages 11-18 from all sorts of backgrounds, primarily kids that come from very unstable home environments and are currently learning basic social skills through the crossroads program.
