“Our camp gives youth who are passionate about basketball, a chance to do what they love during the summer instead of staying on the streets. Our goal is very similar to Andre Fullerton’s – we give youth the opportunity to train themselves ahead of time for a better future” – Brittany Miller (Founder of Building Motivational Dreams)
The Building Motivational Dreams basketball camp was founded two years ago by Brittney Miller – a woman motivated to act as catalyst for change in the priority neighbourhoods of Toronto.
Each day, campers get active with warm-ups, drills, and competitive basketball games. They also get to hear daily from different motivational speakers who visit the camp to speak about both basketball and growing up in a high-risk neighbourhood.
Brittany Miller, the organization’s founder, enjoys being a part of the FOY program.
“Our organization decided to join Focus on Youth because it gives youth a chance to act as leaders and role-models to their peers and also gain independence by learning to take care of their own finances,” said Miller. “I love Focus on Youth”.
