Bayside H.O.Y.A.S Inc, "HOYAS" being an acronym for Helping Our Youth Achieve Success is a Non-Profit (501c3) Organization. Our mission is to promote academic excellence, character development and community service while intergrating sports in its curriculum. We strive to create a forum that promotes each participant's self-worth and confidence by engagement of services that positively impacts the individual, home, school and community.

Our program currently serves over 150 youth on the Eastern Shore in Kent County where many of the children live below the poverty line. Any donation received will go to the following 3 areas to support our program.

1.) Transportation- In our rural county transportation is one of the biggest obstacles to over come. Donations would help provide transportation to and from communtiy service events, cultural field trips and basketball tournaments.

2.) Cultural Fields trips- In helping our youth expand their minds and think outside of their county, we take annually field trips to Washington, D.C. to visit the National Mall, Smithsonian and the Air and Space Muesuem. This year we will visit the new African American History musuem.

3.) Basketball tournaments- This reward is provided to our youth for making a committment to good grades, communtiy service and leadership skills. This sport helps promote team building, life skills, short and long term goals for youth in our county with limited resources for activities.

Any amount donated to our program would be greatly appreciated and would help us continue to support lower-income youth.
