3-Star Foundation Program Highlights
Boys and Girls Club Outreach
A couple of years ago we began a partnership with the Boys and Girls Club. Our leaders show up once a week during their regular scheduled after-school program and utilize the gym for an hour and a half. During this time we take the participants through a number of drills to develop their fundamentals skills to go along with games/competitions. Each session ends with our traditional mentoring segment to build life skills and character.
3-Star Expands to Cumberland County
This summer, 3-Star has expanded its outreach to the Cumberland County area!! We are partnering with the Diakon Wilderness Center to provide programming for their Center Point Day students. It has been a blast! The students (approximately 12 boys and girls) have really been engaged and hungry to learn more about basketball as well as life in general! These at-risk youth really need as much guidance and support as they can get considering the fact that this is their last stop before being placed in a juvenile center. Some are already on probation. This 7 week program ends in a couple weeks and we are planning to continue our partnership into the fall. Stay tuned!
Trent Gray, a 3-Star Alumni, recently stopped by for a visit...

He attended Temple University and played college Football for the Owls. In May, he graduated with a degree in Biology and already has a job lined up in the D.C./Maryland area. We are grateful that he always comes back to Harrisburg and speaks to the participants in the 3-Star Program.

3-star formed a men's basketball league. Most of the young men, either volunteered with the program or were involved in 3-star when young. The young men in the league believed in the same 3-star mentalities to foster the youth. Click the following link to see more pictures this summer league.
