HUFOY Back to School Rally

Community Building is a very important part of what we do. We believe that open communication between our youth, law enforcement and business owners builds awareness and trusting relationships.
We’re always creating new ways to spark the minds of young people. What better way to get them engaged than talking about money. Heads Up For Our Youth teamed with Harpco Benefits Alliance to put a Financial Literacy for young people to teach them about money, saving, and investing. The event was awesome! The youth were engaged and they took notes and discussed what they learned from the session. A parent of one of the youth had this to say – ” I appreciate the knowledge and financial education provided to my son. The conversation we had on the ride home made me excited for his future.”
This was a special moment during one of our basketball skills and drills events. The young man surrounded by the coaches and mentors was a natural lefty and during the first dribbling exercise he became frustrated. He became discouraged and began to cry. The coaches and mentors went to him to encourage and challenge him to step outside of his comfort zone and learn a new technique. He opted to have a one on one dribbling coach and by the end of the session he was all smiles.
