PBR has partnered with the Fulton County Sheriff’s Department and Atlanta Police Athletic League to assist with building positive relationships between the community and law enforcement and to enhance their youth programs through sports and community events. Our partnership also includes hosting community events, such as our March 24th City of Atlanta’s Pre-Season Showdown, an inaugural basketball tournament commencing the partnership between the Atlanta Fire and Law Enforcement Agencies, PBR, and the Atlanta community.
We are planning to host a similar basketball tournament, in June 2018 in the city of Philadelphia, in partnership with the Philadelphia 76ers and Philadelphia’s Law Enforcement Agencies.
We’ve also partnered with Atlanta’s Young Misses, Inc. (AYM). AYM is a 501c3 organization that, since 2012, has been successfully using extra-curricular activities to assist young girls, grades 3rd through 12th with improving and maintaining self-esteem and academic success. PBR will be providing training, mentoring and academic assistance to young female athletes in and around the Metro-Atlanta area who are enrolled in AYM’s programs.
We have a similar partnership with the Jimmy Lee Smith Community Center in Stockbridge, GA.
