The MLK Center is getting bigger, and it's teaming up with Catch The Stars (CTS) to help kids in a big way. Here's how:
IPS School #43 serves over 80 kids in after-school programs daily, and this number goes up to 150 during summers, including the Best Buy Teen Technology Center.
In 2021, 456 hours of 1:1 tutoring were provided, and this increased to 743 hours in 2022. 70% of 4th graders are good at reading.
Currently, 10 students are waiting for tutoring. Over 1000 kids benefited from Catch the Stars programs in 2022, with 100 learning at the Holiday Basketball Camp, 500 setting nutrition and exercise goals, and 1000 getting backpacks with school supplies. More than $100,000 was given to students for their future education.
The new CTS wing in mid-north Indianapolis will host basketball, volleyball, and pickleball tournaments, offer training for Collegiate and Professional players, and run mentorship programs for young athletes.
It's estimated to host 20-30 team tournaments, bringing money to the local economy. The wing will also become a home for Indianapolis Rec Sports programs, giving local youth opportunities to learn, play, and enjoy together in a safe environment. With access to top athletes, quality courts, and great amenities, it aims to shape the next generation of young athletes.
