H.O.P.E and Hoops
Hindering Offensive Perspectives and Emotions
Our H.O.P.E and Hoops school diversity and inclusion program helps students address and tackle social issues such as, but not limited to bullying, rejection, depression, identity, violence, and oppression in an engaging and interactive way.
Our amazing team of pro-athlete speakers and coaches challenge these barriers through the comfort of conversation and the playfulness of basketball.
It is our goal to have every child from all backgrounds, who has experienced or knows someone who has experienced some of today’s social barriers to have access to an inclusive, welcoming environment to learn, challenge and address the external influences that put roadblocks in the way so that achieving the desired goal of the child becomes difficult. Our core belief is that with discussion and an opportunity for the application comes a change of subconscious perspectives, and intolerance toward injustice and oppression.
