“Above the R.I.M”; To Reach, Inspire, and Motivate individuals through sports (basketball). We will promote a continuous knowledge base and produce a high quality of life by developing character, relational, communication and sound decision-making skills through team-work and dedication from the entire community and beyond.
Midnight Basketball League/Program, Inc. (MBLP, Inc.), is an educational, crime- prevention program that focuses predominately on under-served youth and young adults 16-24. Although sports as a whole are used to amass a target audience, contingencies are applied as the participants must attend a series of educational awareness sessions before “hitting the hardwood”; i.e. Health & Wellness, Leadership Empowerment, High School Diploma/GED and Employment preparation. Academically, our focus is centered on Economic Development. The areas of basic finance are not as strong, particularly with our targeted group.
