    To Solve Social Challenges

    Our vision is for PIF Foundation is to be nationally recognized as a foundation for transformative work in the artistic expression of sports, creative youth development, nurturing and sustaining communities where youth, regardless of economic or racial background, are leaders engaging positively in their communities, positively protecting each other, serving as role models and mentors to following generations, and possess the self-discipline, confidence and motivation to reach their full potential.

    We take pride in bridging the gap between youth, sports, education, and community service to help solve the world's problems.​

    Our goal is to positively assist the emerging future leaders of our community in mental, physical, emotional and financial development. Give them a platform to share their experiences, play basketball and bond with others in their community. Our organization will provide them with resources through partnerships for educational services, scholarships, clothing, feminine products, hygiene kits and business development skills. We currently train youth and young adults in basketball, track and field and speed development.


    Although girls are a priority for our organization we provide resource services and training to ALL youth of different physical and mental backgrounds. We offer private and group training sessions to individuals with special needs as well. PIF currently caters to athletes mostly out of Inglewood, South Los Angeles, East L.A, Culver City and the Santa Monica C.A area, let your city be next!
