Saturday, Nov. 21, 2015, Youth Incorporated held it's annual John G. Mann Basketball Jamboree Fundraiser. The event was extremely well attanded and raised money to fund scholarships for Camp Y.I.

Youth Incorporated's mission is to advance the mental, moral and physical development of boys and girls through Junior Pro Basketball, Inline Hockey and Camp YI. Our motto is "Building Leaders for Tomorrow." We believe that if young people are placed under the supervision of competent, trained, moral leaders who challenge their minds and bodies, the end product is a good citizen who will grow into a self-reliant adult.
