The Baller Alert Foundation (BAF) is dedicated to promote the power of the arts and culture to build community in underserved areas. BAF will seek to engage youth in the community who typically lack access in experiencing the arts or developing their own artistic abilities. Providing an educational component as well as access and exposure to careers that promote creativity and the use of arts & culture will promote educational achievement, leadership and business planning skills, and positive pathways to success. BAF focuses on developing and administering educational programs by leveraging the Baller Alert platform to create programming that will allow youth to learn about the entertainment industry from a business perspective, while also promoting higher education and internship options to support these career opportunities. These programs will provide access to industry professionals and explore a diverse range of careers in the music business using differentiated instruction and a hands-on approach to learning.

Overtown is a community with deep roots in Miami, but unfortunately is lacking in the exposure and access to roles and opportunities for creative professionals due to extreme poverty and lack of diverse educational opportunities. We plan to develop and administer educational programs by leveraging the Baller Alert platform to create programming that would allow youth to learn about creative industries from a business perspective, while also promoting higher education options as well as internships to support these career opportunities. Overtown Youth Center - Entertainment Program. We recently started a partnership with the Overtown Youth Center to provide after school programming aimed at meeting our mission.
