FAMILY ON THREE FOUNDATION,INC.
Strengthen our youth | Enrich our community | Change our world
Created in 2015, the Family on Three Foundation was born and dedicated in the loving memory of New York basketball legend, Anthony Mason. The mission of the Family on Three Foundation is to impact our youth and community by providing inner-city kids with positive role-models, strategic enrichment and exposure. Through sports, we aim to unite the youth and community by teaching on-and-off the court values that foster growth, awareness, education and achievement; effectively correlating sports with real life.
We believe that a child’s development is deeply affected by their environment. In some places there are communities nested layers of positive influences and reinforcement; children have the security of a stable home, enriched schools, clean playgrounds and positive role models. In these places it is easily believed by children that they can be successful because everything in their environment enforces that. This isn’t the reality for most children in underprivileged communities. We believe that a child’s sense of self-worth, self-confidence and ambition are the building blocks toward personal success. We believe that by changing the social and physical environments of a child, we can eliminate a maze of obstacles for children consequently creating a network of support and sense of self-worth that promotes their healthy development.
The Family on Three’s Saturday Academy is it's flagship program. The Saturday Academy is a three hour, youth enrichment program for high school students. The curriculum combines ‘on-court’ health and fitness ideals and techniques, with ‘off-court’ workshops and life-skills lessons; pushing for a balance between mental and physical exercise, to properly support the student and the athlete.
Community service is a pillar of the Family On Three Foundation. Family On Three organizes a host of community service events throughout the year that participants can take part in. Giving back to the community is important and we ask that everyone do their part. Students will receive service credit merits toward their graduation requirements as a reward for their efforts during applicable events.
In addition to our traditional programming and public service efforts, the Family on Three Foundation is constantly working on news ways to connect with our community and multiply our philanthropic impact. To do this, several times a year we collaborate with other organizations who share in our mission to host major events.
