DC Housing Authority's 5th Annual Basketball Tournament & Life Skills Event
DCHA’s Housing Choice Voucher Program uses basketball as a vehicle to inspire and positively engage youth by reinforcing team building skills through sportsmanship, providing educational opportunities and offering life skills workshops. HCVP views sports as a vehicle to build communities.
The goal of DCHA and HCVP is to go beyond just providing housing vouchers to empower DCHA clients and highlight the 50,000 District residents it serves as vital community participants. Topics discussed in the life skills workshops include staying fit, dressing for success, financial literacy, critical decision making, sexual awareness, college preparation, leadership characteristics and preventing bullying.
Players must be ages 8 to 16.
Online registration is available for eligible familes at dchousing.org/basketball.
