OUR Programs

The One on One​ Program

The One on One Program was named after leading all time college basketball scorer and Hall of Fame Basketball great Pistol Pete Maravich. The One on One program asks one volunteer to commit to helping another in need after they have been helped.

There are two areas we are specifically focused on:

Little Heroes

This one on one program will award students with various scholarships, providing a unique experience in their life. Just out of the gates we have a baseball and fishing scholarship. Our goal is to help military families first, and eventually other areas.  ​

Warriors Forever

This is designed to have an individual mentor for the needs of the military soldiers serving our country. Each individual will be challenged to do the same one on one mentoring for another when they have completed the program.
