"I want to inspire." - Javon McCrea

With the increase in the crime rate in upstate New York, it is important for Javon to speak to the young people. Sharing his challenges and successes can help to reiterate a more positive path selection to the youth. Javon shares many commonalities with them as he was plagued with many of the same situations and decisions. It was his mindset and determination that diverted him from succumbing to the pressures of violence, drugs and crime.
We’ve found the adult crime rate in upstate New York is one of the highest in the nation. Youthful offenses include bullying, stealing, assault and drugs. Javon wanted to direct their energy toward something positive. With pride, he honed in on the fact that he is just like them. His purpose is to emphasize lifelong skills such as values, self-esteem, goal setting and making responsible choices by way of basketball. So in years 2015 and 2016 he decided to tour schools in the upstate New York and the Boston areas to speak to the youth and share his journey.

Congratulations to the Javon McCrea G.O.A.L Award Winners

To begin his school tour this year, we asked schools catering to kids with learning and developmental disabilities to cut out a total of 1000 fans. We distributed the fans to everyone at the schools on the tour.  


Javon was honored to be the guest speaker at Henry Lomb #20 schools Character Counts Ceremony. This years topic was Citizenship. McCrea was also invited to be the guest speaker at the G.O.A.L (greatness over anything less) event at Abraham Lincoln School #22.  


Below are highlights from this years amazing events.
