Education

Every season, the Mavs Foundation board members select a local nonprofit that is in need of a technology and/or reading room renovation. This Reading & Learning Center is designed to expand learning opportunities for reading and education programs, as well as provide access to technology to assist teens and adults with job-skill training and other valuable tools.

2014-2015 Project: Boys & Girls Club of Greater Fort Worth

Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Fort Worth opens the doors to great futures for more than 13,000 amazing kids every year. The Eastside Branch welcomes youth from some of the most disadvantaged areas in Fort Worth with 67% of members living in single-parent homes and 87% participating in the free or reduced lunch program.

The Mavs Foundation selected the Boys and Girls Club Eastside Branch to create a new Reading & Learning Center with new computers and space to address the modern learning needs of their kids ages 6-18 and gang-involved youth up to age 24.
