Hoop Dreams Athletics:
Hoop Dreams Athletics has been around since 2001, and we are recognized as one of the Top Girls Basketball Programs in the Nation. Our goal is to develop the skills of every participant in the program, and NO OTHER PROGRAM markets players better than WE DO. We desire that each young man or woman receives a full scholarship from a four year university. We pledge to provide that each student athlete receives the best instruction possible. We have the respect from colleges/universities in the ACC, Big East, SEC, Atlantic 10, Pac 10, and many other conferences. We believe in helping the student athlete, not having the student athlete help us. We recruit talented youth whom inspire to play at the collegiate level. The level of talent throughout our program enables us to participate competitively at major exposure events attended by NCAA coaches. Please feel free to contact Dorian Williams at email@example.com

In Our World
Haiti for the World:
Haiti for the World is an all-volunteer leader partnership. We have no paid staff in the U.S. so 100% of your donations go to educators in Haiti. Why Haiti? Even though it is the financially poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, the people are rich in hope. Our partners in Haiti believe that transformation for Haiti and the world will come through the raising of leaders for a better tomorrow. Crucial to raising leaders is a quality education. Because of the lack of public funding for education, help is needed. To see how we help, go to www.haitifortheworld.org
