  • PIL College Access is a program for which the PIL fundraises annually to assist PIL students in finding post-high school sport opportunities. Priority is given to students of color or underprivileged youth who attend Franklin, Jefferson, McDaniel and Roosevelt.

    Students receive a range of services:

    • self-marketing
    • college visitations
    • coach relationships and consultation
    • college application and financial aid
    • transportation to school
    • cost associated with registration and housing
  • Participation fees for PIL Youth Sport Program: PILYSP provides 5000 middle school students with access to middle school sports. The purpose of the program is to:
    • increase the quality of girls' basketball
    • reduce migration to private schools
    • develop feeder programs to PIL high schools
    • install academic standards so they are prepared for high school athletics

    Your contribution will help pay the participation fees for students who otherwise could not afford to participate. (The current cost is $200 per student or $65 for students who receive free or reduced lunch.)
