29 Nov S.C.O.R.E Launch
On November 4th, the Sixers Youth Foundation hosted a kick-off celebration for their signature S.C.O.R.E. program at KIPP Lanning Square Middle School in Camden, NJ. SCORE (Sixers Creating Opportunities, Resources, and Encouragement for Youth) is an intensive youth development program stressing the importance of healthy behaviors, while also supporting students’ social and emotional development.
At the event, Sixers’ Assistant Coach Lloyd Pierce and Sixers’ player Robert Covington had an impactful question and answer session with 75 fifth graders. Sixers In-Arena Host Christian Crosby, Sixers Dancer, Jemila Worley, the Dunk Squad and mascot Franklin also participated in activities facilitated by Drexel University Group Leaders, who will teach the S.C.O.R.E. classes throughout the program.
