Since 1969, Journey House has strengthened communities in need by providing programming to develop employment and life skills. The organization hosts a number of youth programs to provide children living in urban Milwaukee with opportunities to hone leadership and academic abilities, including Math Academy, Girls in the House, and an athletics program that hosts football, cheerleading, and basketball teams.
Journey House’s 2010 basketball program engaged 67 students who ranged in age from 13 to 18 years old, and the organization's five middle- and high-school teams competed in both spring and summer leagues. Athletes are required to adhere to a curriculum designed by coaches that imparts positive skills and values such as goal setting, sportsmanship, and individual responsibility. Players must prioritize academics above athletics, and are required to participate in Journey House's scholastic programs, such as Reading Scholars and Math Academy. Journey House would like to outfit its basketball players with new uniforms to help instill a sense of teamwork and pride in its student athletes and present a unified front during competitions.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help Journey House provide team uniforms for teenage boys participating in its basketball program. If G-Team members raise $440, then Journey House can provide basketball jerseys for eight players on one of its teams. Each additional $55 raised will fund another jersey.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100 percent off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
