Brothers and Sisters Emerging (B.A.S.E.) is a non-profit organization formed to serve as the umbrella organization to Garfield Youth Sports which has been in existence for over 19 years. The B.A.S.E. vision is that through sports, mentoring, advocacy, and other activities, youth and their families can achieve successful educational performance, acquire appropriate social and emotional skills, and attain a solid economic future.
The leaders of B.A.S.E. believe that creating an umbrella organization will help to grow the in-depth youth intervention work that Garfield Youth Sports instills. Through additional advisory board development, programmatic expansion, leadership development (for Coaches, Staff, and Volunteers) and parental involvement, more youth can receive a more in-depth intervention.
