With funding from the Newsboys Foundation, Helping Hoops Future provides a free weekly basketball program held every Wednesday at Victoria University in Footscray for 30 young people aged 15 – 21. A basketball coach runs the program and is supported by a group of volunteers. Young people from diverse cultural backgrounds participate in the program. The initiative builds trust, promotes social inclusion, develops teamwork skills and encourages young people to complete their education. The Newsboys Foundation has been a proud supporter of Helping Hoops since 2012.
