Hit the Books (“HTB”) aims to bring additional educational resources to underserved communities through a sports-based development approach, with tutoring and mentorship at its core and mixed martial arts as the ‘hook’. HTB will serve as an after-school community center to facilitate career development and help make any and every goal achievable for its Students.
HOW WE WILL ACHIEVE OUR MISSION
HTB provides after-school educational programs, mentorship, and mixed martial art classes to kids in Harlem aged 7-12 in order to help our Students progress outside of the classroom intellectually, emotionally, and physically.
HTB will expose its Students to educational and professional opportunities that may otherwise pass them by, fostering an environment of educational equality.
In addition to enhancing the educational resources available to children in impacted communities, HTB hopes to develop into a community within a community, where children feel safe and view the facility as a second home.
