PLAYTIME BASKETBALL: Welcome
'Fathers Know Best Youth Foundation' Presents PLAYTIME BASKETBALL
Fathers Know Best Youth Foundation is a New Jersey non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization which supports AAU sports, education & mentoring opportunities for the youth as well as participating in community outreach programs with local children's hospitals in New Jersey and its surrounding areas.
Our mission is to inspire our youth to become leaders, champions, student-athletes and to empower them to be successful in school and life through sports, education and community relation that will facilitate systemic change. We promote values of selfless service that provides a safe haven in the community. In addition to promoting positive change and growth for children ages of 6 – 17, F K Best assists with building character that's exemplified by leadership. Our particular focus is OUR youth. We set out to strengthen their abilities and help them set short/long term goals and strive for realistic dreams. We execute our mission by conducting programs for the youth primarily in New Jersey and then branching out on a national level.
F K Best established the Youth Foundation in 2007. Funding for the Foundation was made possible by parents of current players who participated on the Teaneck Youth All Star basketball team and Bronx Kings ~ AAU basketball organization. The parents are honest and hard working individuals who love their children and support their activities. Over the past years, many of the parents have watched their children play for various organizations. Since then, we've decided to build an organization and youth foundation that would benefit our children. We create opportunities and provide support for promising youth to fulfill their potential in the classroom, on the court and in the community.
Birth of Fathers Know Best Youth Foundation. Connecting people and organizations around common goals ~ FKB serve as a catalyst by encouraging leaders (i.e. Educators, Athletes, Entrepreneurs and Musicians) to speak with our children and primarily focus on their fields of expertise. They stress the importance of education, family, sportsmanship and careers. Our objective is to establish an AAU Basketball organization ~ “PLAYTIME”. We have competed in many local and regional basketball circuits as well as nationally, under the direction of our volunteer parents. F K Best established a mentoring program ~ “Mothers Know Better after Dark”. Our mentoring program relies greatly on parent participation. We set out to provide tutoring sessions, travel outings such as visits to Museums, Learning centers and designated Monumental sites.
In 2008, F K Best established a community outreach program ~ "THOUGHTS for KIDS". Our community outreach program reaches out to disadvantaged children in the community and sick children in the local Children's Hospitals, throughout the holiday season, and provides gifts and toys.
