who we are

The Shoot Basketballs NOT People Program (SBNP) is a transformative youth basketball program committed to promoting positive change and building stronger communities. Our initiative focuses on using the power of sports, specifically basketball, to inspire unity, foster personal development, and create opportunities for individuals to thrive. 

OUR IMPACT

Shoot Basketballs NOT People helps young individuals impacted by gun violence to break the cycle of generational struggles. Through education, employment, and community involvement, we empower youth to provide for themselves, their families, and their communities.

 

Our goal is to improve safety, quality of life, health, and youth programming, fostering peace. Since 2013, we have positively impacted over 3,000 young individuals in Ohio and Philadelphia.
