Young Quakers Basketball
The Young Quakers Basketball program was launched in fall 2021 for students in 4th-5th grade at the Andrew Hamilton and Henry C. Lea University-Assisted Community Schools. Forty students are scheduled to attend weekly basketball sessions at their schools and a weekly session at Penn. The program focuses on relationship building between Penn Athletes and Young Quakers, sport skill building and social-emotional learning. Activities include special events such as attending Penn basketball games. We also work closely with Penn Basketball alumni to provide career exposure activities for middle school students.
