    Upgrading My Game and My Brain

    At Books and Buckets, we will empower Washington Neighborhood Youth with a Basketball Academy, Guided Reading and Comprehension Help, and Mentoring. Our program aims to provide student-athletes with the fundamental skills that empower them to succeed on the court, in the classroom, and in their community. Our academy undertakes place-based change that focuses on a neighborhood impact, with an aspiring and promising community of strong and powerful Black and Brown youth who have been historically underserved.
