Lay-Up Youth Basketball launched in 2014 as a project under the Regent Park Duke of York Children’s Foundation (RPDYCF) and consisted of two weeks of free, high quality basketball camps. They now run year-round after school programming and on-going summer camps in six high priority neighbourhoods across the city. After identifying mental health supports as an overarching constant need in their programs, Lay-Up is providing high-quality training to their staff and formalizing their mental health curriculum and initiatives (with the help of consultants), in order to incorporate them directly into their programming.
This is an outstanding city.
