Local & International Youth Leadership Program
Local and international engagement opportunities for select student athletes.
PYB is currently planning a series of intensive engagement opportunities for select student athletes to develop the attributes, knowledge, skills, and habits to excel as leaders in their communities. This initiative coincides with and is integrated into our seasonal programming (e.g. Collegiate Summer Camp Series and Middle School Partnership Program).
In summer 2017, PYB partnered with Philadelphia Men’s Basketball League (PMBL) to run a youth basketball camp in rural Jamaica, where young PYB leaders were given the opportunity to participate in the cultural exchange experience as camp participants and mentors to the Jamaica campers.
