Our Ambassador Programs
When one defines the word ambassador, you'll find that it means a person who acts a representative or promoter of a specified activity. Wanting to equip youth with tools they can use to help empower other youth, Lefty developed his Ambassador Programs: Keeping Promises and Dream Keepers. These programs' goals are to put youth at a vantage point, allowing them to gain a better perspective of the world in which they live, as well as move them forward with their goals and aspirations.
Basketball Trip to France
Parents with children ages 7-12 with an interest in basketball and a desire to provide your child/children with an opportunity of a lifetime, KEEP READING! In conjunction with The Bernard Group LLC we have partnered with Executive Global Tours for this amazing experience! Kids are 100% FREE... yes, FREE! Only parents are required to pay. (1 free child per paying parent) This trip is NOT just for kids who already play basketball, or who are advanced... It's for ANY CHILD who has an interest in the game, and more importantly, would not have the opportunity to travel abroad and experience Europe otherwise! We will be coordinating clinics covering basic basketball concepts, playing a few exhibition games with French children of similar skill levels, then traveling to various cities in France taking in the culture! Cost covers flight, hotels, 3 meals a day, and sight seeing adventures. Again... KIDS ARE FREE! Even if you don't have a child that fits in the age range, feel free to share this opportunity with friends and family who would be interested. $500.00 deposit to secure your spot, paid in full 6-8 weeks out (late May to early June). We are looking to host 20 children, and spots are filling up quickly, so please inbox me for serious inquiries only! info@Dare2Dream.xyz or you can call us at 919-584-5738.

Dare 2 Dream Tour
The Dare 2 Dream tour brings Lefty to schools all across North America! On this tour, Lefty captivates the youth with his motivational speaking, mind-blowing basketball tricks, and various prizes! Even with all the excitement that Lefty brings to the youth, he leaves them with something far greater: the charge of Daring 2 Dream! Lefty's Dare 2 Dream tour is more than just getting the youth pumped up about their future. It's about equipping them with the tools necessary to not only hold onto those dreams, but also to actively move forward in reaching them. The Dare 2 Dream Tour helps in creating a stronger body of young people who will carry on as our future leaders! Lefty wants the youth to know that his ceiling of achievements as a professional basketball player will be the floor on which they will stand in platforming their own achievements. Many of the topics on which Lefty touches include substance and alcohol abuse, child abuse, HIV/AIDS, abstinence, setting and achieving goals, peer education and mentorship, higher education, and healthy lifestyles, among many other topics! Lefty's focus as he speaks to the youth is to bring into focus the keys to overcoming challenges that are relevant in their lives.
The Keeping Promises Campaign
Is geared towards elementary and middle school aged youth. This campaign's goal is to help its participants recognize and understand the importance of making and keeping promises or commitments. Whether those promises are to keep bullying out of their school, maintain healthy lifestyles through good eating habits and exercise, or to become a volunteer within the community, it is important for youth to know how to follow through with commitment.
Is geared towards high school students and college aged young adults. This campaign's goal is to help participants keep their dreams alive and work towards those goals without compromise. While each campaign focuses on a different age group, they both place a focus on setting and working towards goals as well as equipping participants with tools to help empower other youth their age.
DARE 2 DREAM Basketball Camp
When the Dare 2 Dream Basketball Camp was developed, Lefty had a vision of an event that would do more than just teach participants game skills and techniques. The mission of the Dare 2 Dream Basketball Camp is to develop and improve player versatility and skill for participants while equipping them with tools that will go beyond the basketball court. Keeping in line with his programmatic thrust, Lefty brings into focus the importance strengthening the mind and body, being accountable, as well as maintaining enthusiasm and determination.
