The mission is to provide sports, educational and physical fitness programs that empower and educate youth. These programs have helped young people recognize their abilities and talents while igniting their self-esteem. The organization intends to provide them with the tools, resources and opportunities necessary for growth and prosperity. We seek to create the kinds of opportunities for young people that more fortunate children may take for granted. We encourage them to be healthy by providing a safe fitness regimen and educate them on nutrition. The Brooklyn Saints encourages them to succeed academically in school and socially outside of school. The organization also encourages them to interact with members of the community who provide a variety of resources and opportunities. We offer guidance for them to pursue a higher education, get better jobs and ultimately make smart career choices. In healthy communities, the process of entering the adult workforce and grasping the responsibility it entails is almost an effortless part of growing up. In our community it has to be instilled, planted and taught on a regular basis in order for it to sink in. We’ve taken on this role wholeheartedly and with pride.
