Knowledge Education Youth Sports (KEYS) stands proudly as a nationally recognized 501(c)3 nonprofit organization funded by private and public donations to provide assistance in “Education, Health and Wellness to Sports Minded Individuals".
Our multicultural organization is looking to build stronger partnerships and working relationships with public and private entities. We are dedicated to promoting these essential areas among youth of all socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds.
Our philosophy is that matching passionate professional athletes, along with corporate sponsors and community youth creates a win-win situation for all. The athletes are able to give back to the community by serving as mentors, the youth gain motivation and knowledge on how to succeed, while the sponsors gain advertising and marketing through the many events hosted by Knowledge Education Youth Sports a WIN-WIN!
The problem in most communities is the lack of resources necessary to overcome barriers. Challenges such as inadequate sporting equipment, computer accessibility, food, and activities necessary to empower our youth. (I.e. mentoring/literacy) While the support is there, but the resources are not. We can create a system for reduction in high school drop-out rates, increased literacy/SAT scores, and college attendance over incarceration can be a reality leading to professional careers.
