Shooting Touch, Inc., based in Boston, Massachusetts, is an international nonprofit organization whose mission is to use the power of sport to deliver health education, intervention and empowerment to young individuals and their families around the world. Founded in 2007, Shooting Touch utilizes a sport-for-social-development model that provides at risk youth with increased access to physical activity and education that encourages healthy habits and personal development.   

Specifically, we use the sport of basketball to achieve three objectives: 1) promote physical activity,  wellness and health education; 2) support equal access to sport; and 3) empower communities to work together to create social change breaking the cycle of poverty and disease.  We provide youth with on and off the court programming that combines on court skills and lessons and off court values and education.

Shooting Touch implements two signature programs: 1. Boston: G3:  Getting Girls in the Game program providing 75 girls, ages 9-17, with opportunities to participate in supportive and female-friendly programming that provides off-court health education, mentorship and academic tutoring; and 2. Rwanda: The Basketball Health Corps (BHC) serving over 2,500 youth, ages 7-21, from 7 rural communities in the Republic of Rwanda’s Eastern Province.
