Proud to support SSF in their pursuit of building community through athletics.
Changing Saturday nights in Shoreline.
Hello Leadership Family,
Just wanting to write you an update on what the leadership program is going to look like through the end of April(through the school closures).
We will not be hosting our next 2 basketball nights or taking back Friday events or April student leadership meeting in conjunction with the school cancellations. We will keep you posted on when we will be re-upping. Things are uncertain and in flux and we will do our best to communicate amidst the unknown.
In the words of one of my favorite authors and speakers:
"Conversations will not be cancelled.
Relationships will not be cancelled.
Love will not be cancelled.
Songs will not be cancelled.
Reading will not be cancelled.
Self-Care will not be cancelled.
Hope will not be cancelled.
May we lean into the good stuff that remains."
Let's use this as a time to consider the other in our actions, be on the look out for and support the vulnerable, and take care of ourselves as well.
Let me know if there is ANY way I can support you or your family in this season.
Let's kick this thing in the butt together and come out stronger on the other side of things.
Much love to all of you!
Happy Hand Washing and Checking in on Your People,
Karlie and the Leadership Team
Come on out to Shorecrest High School from 8:30-11pm for hoops, friends, and pizza.
Scroll down for our full schedule and more details about the event!
Basketball Night became one of the most popular activities for Shoreline teenagers last year. Each Basketball Night, we provide a safe and fun place for youth to get some free pizza and get connected to new friends.
Here is our Basketball Night schedule for the 2019-2020 school year.
After a decade of asking local teenagers the question, "what do you need most?" the most common answers have been, "Something fun to do" and "Someone I can really talk to." Basketball Night has a special culture that hits on both of these needs.
Over the past 4 years of it's operation, Basketball Night has become a special place to me. The 20+ leaders that run the night, throw the doors wide-open to everyone who wants to come in, greeting every individual by name and setting the tone for an environment that allows kids to connect, who otherwise would likely never speak to each other.
On a weekend in Shoreline, it is very common for students from local schools to feel isolated, bored, or wreckless. Shorecrest's "Healthy Youth Survey" reports that roughly 1 in 5 Shorecrest students acknowledge they have ridden with a driver who had been drinking in the past month. That's more than 200 kids from just one of our local High Schools per month. Saturday night is a key time of the week when many local students are the most likely to become a part of these statistics.
The Foundation is devoted to empowering youth and building a diverse community. We would like to sincerely thank the more than 50 volunteers who have helped put on Basketball Night, the parents who have encouraged their kids to join this event and the donors who have made this night possible. Please join us at either Shorecrest or Shorewood High School on Saturday Nights to help our community be a fun and healthy place to live.
