In 2018 the Fatherhood Encouragement Project launched a youth basketball league geared
toward boys in 5th - 8th grade growing up without active fathers. The Future Collegiate Stars YBL was created to help boys become more educated on community, team work, and educational future. Although the league was created with fatherless children as the focus, we allow all boys 5th-8th grade to participate.
The league lasts 4 weeks and each participant plays 2 games a week plus an All Star Game to cap off the league.
The league offers free tutoring to all participants as well as requires every player to serve 4 hours of community service.
All 8th grade participants and their guardians must attend a 1 hour free college application and financial aid class hosted by our coaches.

The Fatherhood Encouragement Project has a mission to serve fathers, families, and children! We mentor over 100 fathers annually, serve over 2,000 families yearly and impact hundreds of children through programs like the HEAL Project and the Future Collegiate Stars YBL! We adopt over 200 fatherless children in need for Christmas and serve our community monthly!
