Brooklyn is both driven and determined and is one who takes charge as a leader and encourages others to excel in all they do. Her interests are in Sports, Music, and Drama.
The need for Brooklyn’s funding stems from her current family situation. Pamela Artavia, Brooklyn's mother, has 6 other children. Pamela was left in a tough position as her husband faced difficulties and was forced to leave home. As a result, she has been working extremely hard with the financial burden to take care of her children. Brooklyn hoped to attend HoopLife and Pamela reached out to HoopLife for assistance.
BOOST Kids has given Brooklyn the opportunity to play basketball and to learn the skills of the game and skills to develop her character! She has loved her time at HoopLife and the opportunities it has presented.
Zane is the 4th oldest child - a middle child. Zane is full of spunk and is very charismatic. He is strong in both academics and in sports. Although Zanes love for basketball dominates his life, Zane also has a love for helping others. Zane loves to volunteer; especially when it comes to volunteering with little children and those with disabilities.
When Zane joined BOOST Kids, there were 8 children in his household and 6 of them were under the age of 16. His Mother had difficulties providing the necessities, and there was no room for programming. Through HoopLife, Zane was supported, able to build up his confidence, and gain more role models in his life that have ultimately led him to working towards College Level Basketball.
Millie is the youngest of 3 girls. She has an amazing personality, is funny and a very caring soul. She loves animals, the outdoors, swimming, and dancing. As she watched her sisters play basketball, she became their biggest fan and cheered for them. She enjoys learning and playing basketball and HoopLife would be an amazing opportunity for her.
Being the youngest of 3 kids, it was a struggle for Millie’s Single Mother who works full time and was in schooling to find time for her kids and to put them in youth programs. BOOST Kids has offered Millie and her family support through the opportunity to play at HoopLife & receive gifts and supplies.

Families are screened on their background and household income to determine if they qualify for the BOOST program. With dozens of children already paired, we are only scratching the surface with dozens more on the sidelines waiting to be paired.
Families who have low household income, receive support through the provincial government, or have troubling home situations are all considered eligible. Children and youth ages 7 to 18 years are all eligible to become a BOOST Kid.
BOOST Kids was created to assist underprivileged families who don’t have the resources to give gifts and extracurricular programs like HoopLife to their children.
We have seen family after family experience difficulty in supporting their children due to personal circumstances. We want to continue helping everyone in our community.
We must partner with the leaders in our community to support the children that need help most.
Mentorship is a key area of your investment. We believe that all children need a model of success and discipline to follow and learn from to be successful.
Our coaches work to positively impact every child and provide guidance depending on their unique skillset and situation. We become the big Brothers and Sisters for our BOOST kids helping them to be successful and confident to achieve anything they set their mind too. Our HoopLife team is dedicated to mentoring the youth.
When approved, your child will receive a 3-Point HoopLife Membership ($3000 ~ Value) with training and mentorship from the HoopLife Team each week, year-round.
In addition, your child receives School Supplies, Birthday Gifts, and Christmas Presents which are presented as $100 gift cards for each present!
