The NBA Foundation
Furthering economic empowerment in the Black community.
The NBA Foundation is committed to driving economic opportunity and empowerment in the Black community. Together, City Year and the NBA Foundation are helping AmeriCorps members prepare for their post-service goals and plan their pathways to college and career success. Throughout their service year, City Year AmeriCorps members participate in career development programs that include goal setting, mentoring opportunities and networking events with government, business and nonprofit leaders.
Supported by NBA players, owners and league executives, the NBA Foundation also funds a multi-city network that is piloting new career development practices that City Year hopes to codify and share nationally.
