The HOOP Foundation, Inc. has been a catalyst for personal and academic achievement to over 2,500 youth, ages 5-18, in Inglewood and South Los Angeles. As youth development dollars have shrunk or have become non-existent, HOOP has leveraged resources with public and private entities to ensure that they are able to partake in multidisciplinary integrated programming.
Our work is critical to offering healthy and holistic alternatives to youth that build their physical, academic, social, and spiritual skills as well as moral character. For every donation of $50.00 we are able to provide 1 youth a HOOP travel bag, t-shirt and resistance band.
The programs begin in September and ends in August with periodic breaks during the year, i.e., spring and winter breaks. Each program is 90 minutes to 2 hours and held 1 or 2 days per week.
