In 2012, we re-structured our program focusing on our “Positive Impact Projects”. The Positive Impact Projects consisted of three components: The Positive Impact Basketball Academy, The Blackboards and Backboards Student-Athlete Academy, and the Capital District Classic. The Basketball Academy will provide skill development to student-athletes throughout the Capital Region from k-12 through rigorous basketball workouts designed to improve each player’s overall skills. The Blackboards and Backboards Student-Athlete Academy hosted 24 student-athletes in grades 6-8 with basketball skills and life skills workshops to assist them in the college recruiting process. Last but not least, the Capital District Classic provided a platform to the top 40 junior high players in region in an all-star game setting. By expanding our programs, we not only improved our community base, but more importantly provided more meaningful outlets for our youth.!

In 2013, Positive Impact New York’s 10th anniversary, we will look to continue to improve ways to develop tomorrow’s leaders. To do this, we need your help. Whether it’s volunteering at our Blackboards & Backboards Student-Athlete Academy, or sponsoring our Capital District Classic, we will continue to scale Positive Impact New York with your support.!

I wish you all much happiness, great health and success in 2013. I am fortunate to serve you and our youth!!

Much Love,!

As a senior, Jelani averaged 22 points, eight rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks and led the Cadets to a 14-5 record.
