At TBE, we believe that we are all ambassadors—not only to the game of basketball, but to every label we fall under as individuals. Every man and woman is an ambassador to the larger group of men and women, because every interaction with one leads to a perception of the group as a whole. Our Youth Ambassador program strives to reach disadvantaged youth with life lessons like these in an environment where they’re most receptive: a basketball court.

The process of improving in both sports and life is a journey inward and outward. The drive and focus to work hard regardless of recognition or immediate results; the balance to manage swings of emotion; the confidence to take your next shot after missing your last—these are all internal skills. External skills deal with how we interact with people. Listening to others and acknowledging them, using words of encouragement, receiving praise and criticism in stride, and showing respect to both teammates and opponents alike—these are vital external skills. And they’re not only vital on a basketball court; the relationships that exist with other players, coaches, and referees are mirrored in interactions with friends, family members, coworkers, and authority figures.

The sad truth is that great opportunities are rare for our disadvantaged youth. Our goal is to establish the best habits for our Youth Ambassadors today, with the hope that they can take full advantage of every opportunity that comes their way in the future. 

The Youth Ambassadors program is currently implemented in the San Antonio area with Haven For Hope, SAMMinistries, and SA Youth.

Our Parent Engagement program is an ongoing initiative that focuses on increasing active participation, communication, and collaboration between parents, schools, and communities with the goal of educating the whole family to ensure student achievement and success. This is accomplished by developing activities that foster inclusion, involvement, and a fun environment for all families.

These activities are developed by a campus team made up of the parents. Parents are the driving force and architects of the program, with the following goals:
• Development of meaningful and fun family activities that promote parental involvement;
• Identification of community resources and specialized services;
• Advocacy for inclusion of parent “voice” in decision-making;
• Leadership development and civic engagement; and,
• Empowerment of all parents in making positive choices for their families, schools, and the communities they represent.

If you or someone you know is looking for support for basic needs like food, utilities, assistance with technology, academic resources to support at-home-learning, or resources to support students on a social-emotional level, we have provided links to community and online resources on our website.

The links are in three categories: Basic Needs (including internet service), Academic Resources, and Social-Emotional Resources. Please visit our website for more information.

Communities In Schools programs surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Our evidence-based approach, adapted to meet each community’s unique needs, is the basis for our success.

Basic Needs: A student cannot focus in the classroom if he or she is hungry, cold or tired, or cannot see the board. Site coordinators see to it that students' basic needs are met each day.

Enrichment: Our Site coordinators enroll students in a wide variety of after-school and summer programs, field trips and youth conferences to help them gain experience that is essential to meeting college and career goals.

Academic Assistance: Our site coordinators work hard to ensure that students have the resources to progress academically. From providing students with tutors to finding and creating quiet spaces where students can study, we do whatever it takes to create an optimal learning environment for our students.

Life Skills: Through one-on-one workshops, team building, and guest speakers, we work with students to develop social-emotional learning, character education, social skills building, and conflict resolution.

Behavioral Interventions: Many of our students face and overcome difficult obstacles in their lives. However, their survival skills aren’t always effective in the classroom or in the workplace. Our program teaches students positive ways to cope with anger, conflict resolution, and other strategies to keep them focused on school.

Family Engagement: Site coordinators connect families with counselors and social workers to make sure that home is a healthy, nurturing environment where a student can feel safe.
