Vertical Leap

Vertical Leap is a totally dynamic and intense initiative for youth grades 4th – 10th.   It is not just another program, but rather a comprehensive approach to help provide students with the necessary skills needed to be successful and productive in life. 

This initiative promotes the development of young people into critical thinkers and strong, ethical leaders through the use of an “A.C.E.” experience that focuses on three components:
Athletics, Career Development and Education.

Activities include:

Athletics – Passionate, experienced Coaches teach skills that can't be taught in a classroom and that are extremely helpful when preparing for a career.  This experience focuses on character development through leadership, teamwork, good sportsmanship, discipline, dedication, and hard work. Coaching extends far beyond the basketball court and into homes and school classrooms.  Activities are scheduled on weekends with intense activities occuring during the Summer months.

Career Development – Dedicated professionals provide relevant skills and knowledge needed to be successful in the workforce through intense exposure to business operations throughout the community. Youth receive assistance with career planning to obtain meaningful work and, through mentoring, to help them to envision themselves as future professionals. These activities are scheduled at least quarterly.

Education – Educators, in collaboration with school teachers and counselors, offer one-on-one tutorial services at a minimum of 1 hour per week, Monday – Friday between 3 pm and 6 pm.  Professionals, dedicated to the success of participants, work in partnership with students, teachers and parents to ensure participants' academic readiness for college.

All activities may involve travel at various times of the year.   This experience is focused, intense and rewarding.  Commitment is required for participation.  For more information contact Ronnie Brooks at rbrooks@bclifecenter.org
