Since 2009, Hoops for Health has been promoting a healthy, balanced lifestyle through diet and exercise.
Youth Xplosion aims to provide families with the guidance necessary to build strong, vibrant, and productive communities. We recognize and understand the value of maintaining the family unit for the growth of a community and aim to provide avenues for community members and families who want to make a contribution but do not know where to begin.
Beginning with our youth, leadership, and mentorship programs within Youth Xplosion works with participants to harness their mental power and energy towards becoming leaders and productive citizens within their communities.
We encourage our youth to apply the leadership and self-esteem techniques that they learn through the Youth Xplosion curriculum, along with the tangible insight they glean from community leaders, in order to gain a clear understanding of the efforts needed to pursue of their own goals.
More than 500 people volunteer for us each year and make the difference in the lives of thousands. Find out how to volunteer.
