New Heights Youth (New Heights) currently serves over 200 student-athletes, ages 10-18, from New York City’s disadvantaged neighborhoods. Our core program, College Bound, integrates education, athletics, and leadership development to help student-athletes develop the skills they need to be successful in high school, college, and life. New Heights uses basketball as (1) a strategy to engage young men and women in academic activities; (2) a “classroom” in which participants develop values and life skills that stretch beyond athletic competition; and (3) a means to help student-athletes access high quality educational opportunities. The program provides disadvantaged student-athletes access to resources that they would never have otherwise including academic instruction, tutoring, mentoring, leadership development, test preparation, school visits, financial aid workshops, individualized counseling, and guidance during the high school/college application process.
