New Heights Youth, Inc. is a non-profit sports-based youth-development and educational organization based in New York City. New Heights creates opportunities and provides support for promising youth to fulfill their potential in the classroom, on the court and in the community. Their mission is to educate and empower promising inner-city youth to be leaders, champions and student-athletes by developing the skills necessary for success in high school, college and life. New Heights’ core program, College Bound, offers comprehensive middle school and high school educational programming and support services to over 250 students annually and takes place daily during after-school and Saturday hours and throughout the day during the summer. Throughout their programming, New Heights is relentless in our support of our student-athletes and we serve as a valuable resource to their families. They involve parents and family members in the College Bound program through frequent check-ins by phone or email, home and school visits, and informational workshops throughout the year. New Heights supports families through crises by making referrals to social services and acting as a parallel family in times of need.
