Saturday Night Lights (SNL) is a youth violence prevention and youth-development program funded by the New York County District Attorney’s Office (DANY). While SNL focuses on Basketball and fitness activities, programming likewise integrates supplementary social services to more holistically help young people reduce violence and criminal justice involvement and increase engagement in prosocial activities. Through teaching the sport of basketball, coaches will reinforce life skills such as teamwork, cooperation, sportsmanship, and communication. In addition, once coaches have taught their students basketball concepts and rules of the game, they have the opportunity to have them participate in games, scrimmages and tournaments to compete against other clubhouses and community based organizations.
