Hoops with Heart was founded and is run by dedicated teen scholar-athletes with the goal of empowering at-risk youth in Los Angeles through sports and mentorship. By donating sports equipment and leading mentoring clinics, we are able to make one-on-one connections with children living in communities challenged by poverty and crime. We help kids get excited about fitness and build self-esteem, while providing tools that will lead them to success! 


Hoops with Heart has worked with 8,000 children, donated $15,000 in new sports equipment, and has over 60 elite college and high school scholar-athlete mentors enrolled.
