Cultivating Youth

Cultivating Youth is a nonprofit via Motivation Team Athletic Academy. Our focus is to tackle childhood trauma through physical activity while building confidence and nurturing discipline through mentorship.


Who We Serve

We support youth with a full-circle approach including: athletic training, social skills, professional development, emotional intelligence, spiritual insight, tutoring & STEM based learning, life skills, job readiness and physical wellness. The program services youth ages 7-17 years old.


How We Serve

Our program directors and founder, who is a reformed incarcerated male, select professionals from the community to help influence through speaking and workshop engagements at MTAA coupled with the daily program initiatives.


When We Serve

We operate part-time, after-school during the school year and full-time during the summer. Our program is simply a gateway for most youth to escape chaos and come to a place of comfort but our goal is to connect with the youth where they are and introduce them to a full-circle, healthy lifestyle.


Why We Serve

Long term goal is to become a free community youth resource center, emergency shelter and transitional housing for troubled youth. 



Program Overview

Cultivating Youth Summer Camp hopes to assist our youth in the community with discovering a healthy lifestyle coupled with athletic skills, literacy, life skills, entrepreneurship, different career exploration breakouts, a summer trip & more! Our camp is open to boys and girls between the ages of 7 and 12 y/o.
