Keeping Dreams Alive Foundation™ “Live Your Dreams”“Change One Life, Change A Generation™”
Keeping Dreams Alive Foundation™, Inc is a non for profit 501(c)(3) that was incorporated in 2001. The foundation was built on the idea that giving back to the community is key to the success of changing the mindset of that community.
KDA™ targets at risk teens, college bound student-athletes, and low to moderate income families. KDA Foundation™ has the ability to teach young men and women how to successfully “learn the game”, “play the game” and “win the game” through its’ scholarship programs. Its’ main focus is on serving the inner city population of young men and women teaching them how to prepare for life and get to the next level. The programs within the foundation fund these efforts.
The KDA™ board members and staff consist of ex-athletes, educators, community leaders, and business consultants. We totally support students and student athletes and their parents as they transition academically /socially from middle to high school and beyond. We realize that the student athletes from the inner city need more support with maintaining good academic habits and acquiring appropriate life skills. Our team of teachers, counselors, and coaches all are dedicated to helping our youth avoid negative distractions, eliminate weaknesses, build awareness about common setbacks in school, and improve athletic capabilities. Keeping teenagers out of trouble and getting them to successfully game plan their futures enable us to help “Keeping Dreams Alive”.
