There are several people that Javon McCrea and his team would like to thank for helping to make this tour a GREAT SUCCESS!

Many Thanks

With the increase in the crime rate in upstate New York, it is important for Javon to speak to the young people. Sharing his challenges and successes can help to reiterate a more positive path selection to the youth. Javon shares many commonalities with them as he was plagued with many of the same situations and decisions. It was his mindset and determination that diverted him from succumbing to the pressures of violence, drugs and crime.
We’ve found the adult crime rate in upstate New York is one of the highest in the nation. Youthful offenses include bullying, stealing, assault and drugs. Javon wanted to direct their energy toward something positive. With pride, he honed in on the fact that he is just like them. His purpose is to emphasize lifelong skills such as values, self-esteem, goal setting and making responsible choices by way of basketball. So in the month of June 2015 he decided to tour schools in the upstate New York and the Boston areas to speak to the youth and share his journey.
