Crossover Mission helps the kids who need us most to become successful adults through a program of year-round basketball training and one-to-one academic mentoring.
Our kids often live in difficult family situations and are surrounded by violence and drug abuse. Because of this, they are at risk of school drop-out, gang involvement and incarceration. Crossover redirects their lives by providing structure, accountability, positive role models and exposure to broader life experiences
Crossover Mission, Inc., is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to support and redirect at-risk youth through after school programs run by dedicated coaches and mentors. The program uses basketball as a tool to attract and motivate student athletes, academic support to monitor and promote achievement and one-to-one mentors to provide local and world exposure to young minds. In that pursuit, the secondary purpose of Crossover Mission, Inc. is to build a bridge of friendship and understanding between cultures, starting at a young age, which will help to erode the walls of separation which continue to divide our society.
Crossover Mission is the culmination of a vision to join together, in unity, to reach out to the young people who need it most. In helping kids to reach their potential, we elevate society. It is a long road and takes hard work and commitment; kids need positive mentors and a vision of excellence to see the road ahead.
Crossover Mission offers a low-cost program of athletics and academic support with scholarships for children and families who cannot afford recreation or competitive basketball in Indian River County. We require a annual registration fee of only $50/year.
The Crossover program consists of three important and equal components: athletics, academics, and mentoring/exposure. We work with student/players each week, year-round, training them in basketball fundamentals and fitness, supporting their academics with focus on schoolwork, mathematics, literacy, and writing. We mentor our members through character training, positive development of mindsets, etiquette, confident self-expression, and exposure to the broader world.
