Creating Young Minds awards partial scholarships based on Character and Education for attendance at Creating Young Minds Academy, which includes a Prep basketball team and an AAU basketball team under the same name – CYM. Creating Young Minds Academy is a year-round basketball program with an emphasis on Education, Character, and Responsibility.
Creating Young Minds was created to help young men achieve success in life that otherwise would be unavailable to them. We focus on teaching, grooming, and developing young athletes into young men. The objective is to teach these young men how to have a purpose in life, how to humble themselves, work hard, and have good character. The first priority is the academic success of each athlete, the second priority is the development of self, and the third priority is the basketball skill development. Our desired result is for the young men to become responsible, educated, successful adults fully willing and capable of helping many others. We have found that basketball is a very productive tool for reaching young men and teaching them these principles. If Athletes and/or Families fail to follow the guidelines and structure of the program, the athlete will be removed from the program at the discretion of the program directors.
