Academics alone are not enough to raise healthy, responsible, and culturally rooted black boys. The purpose or EACS’ Weekly Basketball Clinics is to provide a safe, culturally rooted environment for East African youth to come together, develop discipline, physical fitness, as well as leadership and team-building skills. Representation matters. Therefore, EACS’ Basketball Clinics are also a place where our team can lead by example, modeling the kind of behavior and drive for personal betterment we desire for our children.
Culture, Representation, and Mentorship: in addition to physical fitness, and endurance training, our widly popular Basketball Clinics create a positive and inspirational environment rooted in East African culture, identity, and values. Every week more than 50 youth push their physical fitness limits, develop leadership skills, and learn how to collaborate with other East African youth.
The results have been deeply transformative and prove that East African Community Services’ Academics inclusive approach to youth development is working. While we are experiencing waiting lists for Basketball Clinics, we encourage parents interested in registering their youth to contact the Athletic Directors:
