Drew League Foundation
Established in 2009, the Drew League Foundation is designed to help the youth of South Central Los Angeles and surrounding areas defy the stereotypes brought forth by the communities they call home. Instead of leaving young members of society to their own devices and forcing them to face obstacles in life alone, the foundation aims to provide encouragement and support as well as opportunities and experiences.
More than a sports league, the Drew League Foundation offers youth a safe place to grow. Mentors work with each child to develop character, while allowing young personalities to shine. With a goal of producing upstanding citizens, the relationships that are cultivated in the foundation's programs enhance the quality of life for both the kids and the mentors.
Knowing that every child deserves a chance at greatness, the Drew League Foundation wants to show them all what life has to offer. But most of all, they want them to stand up proud knowing that they are valued members of society with a support system there to help navigate life when life gets tough.
