Midnight Youth Basketball In New Orleans
Midnight Basketball provides safe recreational opportunities in crime hot spots for young men who are most at risk of being victims or perpetrators of violent crime in New Orleans. During the 8-week season, participants are connected to positive role models, community resources, jobs and educational opportunities.
The National Basketball Players Association Foundation has committed to setting aside $50,000 a year for scholarships over the next three years. On the 16th of September 2017, three young men from the league received scholarships in the first round of presentations.
