Welcome to LFYO

LFYO provides innovative and cutting-edge programs to youth and adults across all economic backgrounds. Our approach is quite simple: meet them where they are, but help them get to where they are going. We speak the language of our audience – whether urban or suburban – while helping them obtain new heights in their personal and financial development that they didn’t think were possible, without ever being judgmental about their life experiences or current standing.


“The problem for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is                              too low and we reach it.”

LFYO 2015 Fundraising Gala

We have been anticipating this milestone, our 15th year in service as a non-profit organization, even more than our 5th- and 10th-year anniversaries. In light of the challenges faced in securing sustainable funding sources through the years, and given the fact that 80 percent of non-profit organizations started by professional athletes completely dissolve within three years after they have played their last game in the spotlight, we’ve nonetheless made a significant difference in the lives of more than 10,000 youth and adults since our inception in 2000.

With a passion for education and a wife by my side who possesses an amazing gift to design cutting-edge content, I had an inclination that we could create an experience that would not only be hard to duplicate in the non-profit (or even for-profit) sector, but would also change the downward or static trajectory of a disadvantaged young person’s legacy. This “gut” feeling is the same one I experienced on the court when the game was on the line and the basketball was in my hands. Now, instead of taking the shot, I am giving the assist to those who needed it the most.

On April 26th at Smith & Wollensky’s, we will celebrate this momentous occasion – our 15-year anniversary. As a past guest, we’d love to have you and your company’s support once again in 2015. As a new team member, we welcome your support as well. Please take a moment to view the LFYO 2015 Fundraising Gala Save-the-Date Flyer for investment commitment opportunities and confirm your level of sponsorship or attendance today.
