Buff City Hoops is just one of many groups that has acted like a fishing net in attracting like-minded community groups whose goal is to create a better life for the young people of our City.

The YWAP Director gave a 9 Minute Direction before the start of the basketball program. Race was the topic of the day. You can find the information on our website under "9MD Race." We attack issues head-on, kids need our honesty and integrity. At YWAP, we call it "Power Moment Mentoring" We mentor in the power of the emotional moment that the young people are experiencing.
