Hearing “you can’t” can be devastating. Maybe not the first time, or even a few times. But when you constantly hear “you can’t,” “you won’t,” and “why would you”—even in unspoken ways—the word can’t starts to define you. It becomes the way you see the world.

Through 1:1 mentoring, daily classrooms, life-skills/character qualities building, and family support help students in Parkrose say “yes, I can.” We are knocking down barriers to success, to help kids find their “I can” moments. Join us! bit.ly/2AXhAz6

And that's a wrap! We ended camp with a bang, working on defensive slides, taking charges, and diving after loose balls. Played some 3-on-3, 2-on-2, 1-on-1, and even go some push-ups in with Coach Marty (aka: Coach Swole). The kids went home happy and tired, which means the first annual Elevate summer basketball camp was a success!! ... See MoreSee Less
