Over the past 21 years, the Mavs Foundation, has built 34 Learn & Play spaces throughout the North Texas community, including 13 Reading & Learning Centers and 21 basketball courts.

The Reading & Learning Centers are designed to expand learning opportunities for reading and education programs, as well as provide Computer Labs and access to technology to assist teens and adults with job-skill training and other valuable tools.

2016-2017 Project: Kids U
The Mavs Foundation created a Reading & Learning Center for the Park Ninety Six 90/Jackson Branch of Kids-U, a free after-school tutoring program set up on-site in low-income apartment communities. The new Center is available for the Kids-U program at the apartment complex, serving 55 low-income students daily in the core learning subjects of math, language arts and reading.
