Community Spotlight: MetroBall Youth Outreach

MetroBall, now the largest youth streetball league in the D.C. area, was formed in 2000 as a way to keep children and youth active and engaged all year long. The nonprofit operates an after-school basketball program at several area schools and has a youth travel team that competes in tournaments around the country. And the program goes beyond ball: MetroBall provides youth with trained instructors who help them stay focused to meet their goals. These trainers interact with youth for 10-15 hours a week during a full year. 

In addition to the after-school and travel team programs, MetroBall offers an 8-week summer tournament with divisions for elementary school, middle school, junior varsity, and varsity. The nonprofit also has programs for college preparation and sports journalism. This month, Terrance Judge and Kevin Jones, the group’s co-founders, told us all about how MetroBall works for District area kids. 

Community Spotlight: CityDance

CityDance has provided a variety of dance-related opportunities since 1996. The nonprofit trains dancers for professional careers, but it also offers recreational dance programs through summer sessions and a dance and fitness studio. Through their IGNITE program, trained instructors help aspiring choreographers create and present their work. 

The CityDance DREAM after-school program uses dance to guide youth to academic and family success. It is a tuition-free program that follows students from 3rd grade through high school, providing support for their educational endeavors, preparing them for college, and providing family services. This award-winning program is nationally recognized. This month, we spoke to CityDance President and CEO Alexe Nowakowski to find out how dance creates success for so many youth in our area.
