Foster Care Youth Sharpen Skills On and Off the Court

June 5, 2018 / Independent Youth News

Queens, NY  Young men in our family foster care and residential programs honed their court skills recently at a basketball clinic hosted at our Ottilie gym and run by current and former professional basketball players. There was a mentorship component as well as players and youth shared past experiences and discussed future goals and what it will take to achieve them.

This unique opportunity was part of a partnership with Cicatelli Associates (CAI) to strengthen healthy behaviors and provide positive role models for young men in foster care. Photos.
