Lifting Horizons – Night Hoops

Lifting Horizons in WA is a harm prevention charity that creates and runs social inclusion, engagement and leadership programs to support youth at risk by helping them to make positive life choices and break the cycle of disadvantage.

Disengagement and disadvantage is a big issue among the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youths and the disadvantage plays out as anti-social behavior, particularly on weeknights. Through the Sport4Everyone grant, Lifting Horizons will run a 6-week Night-hoops tournament with up to 80 young people participating in a basketball game and workshop every evening, followed by a healthy meal and transport home. This program will help to offer safe, constructive and healthy alternatives for at-risk young people.
