IMPACT Task Force

We are a team dedicated to making a difference in our communities. Through our IMPACT program, we positively influence youth in our communities, focusing on academic excellence, sports opportunities and physical fitness, and inclusive empowerment.

IMPACTMo’ Motion serves 1,000 players grades K-12 annually in the upper east, upper west and Harlem sections of Manhattan.  We raise funds to support scholarship players and sponsor teams, and we renovate gyms and provide equipment support to organizations and schools-in-need. Our strategic plans are to include more youth in sports in an age when sports experiences are geared toward 1) paying participants and 2) very talented ones.

Through IMPACT we strive to:

  • Provide Scholarships to players in financial need
  • Reach youth who are often under-served in sports and academic opportunities through programs such as IGNITE
  • Provide Financial Literacy and Meditation Clinics
  • Provide inclusive playing opportunities through the Gotham Basketball Association (GBA)

Making an IMPACT with the Cubs

For eight seasons, Mo’ Motion has been the proud source of motivation and support for girls grades 3-5 who want to learn how to play hoops and be part of a team.  This year we decided to add two boys’ teams as well, given the popularity and demand to play by the boys, especially since the school moved into a brand new building with a beautiful gym right down the street. Read more here about their journey, challenges, and successes!

Support Our Goals

In order to reach these goals and provide needed opportunities to youth who are too often left in the margins, we need community and business support. Please see our Donations page to learn how you can help. We also need volunteer assistance to help support our programs and ensure that all youth in our communities have access to quality opportunities.

Looking for an Internship or want to Volunteer?

Our program relies on volunteers – both students who need to fulfill volunteer hours for school, and adults who are looking to give back to the community and support youth.
