Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

Primary goal of JLT Fieldhouse, Inc., is just what our mission statement covers, "Coaching and Mentoring the Leaders of Tomorrow". We want to provide youth in the lower income areas of our community the same opportunities that the privileged are currently participating in, at low to no cost to them. Establish our scholarship foundation to allow all of our participants, as well as non participants to to have the opportunity to attend higher education institutions, without fear of not being able to afford the tuition. As we grow, we will implement our Learning/Innovation Center, that will be partnered with the two higher education institutions in our community, Livingstone College and Catawba College. Collaborating with the education departments at each school, we would like to have them incorporate us into their curriculum to allow their education majors the opportunity to work first hand in our learning center, to build community unity, while also allowing them the opportunity to gain early teaching experience prior to graduating.

Prior to reaching that point, we will work with our other nonprofit organizations, offering our services to assist in improving quality lives. Examples of those are Prevent Child Abuse Rowan, Rowan Helping Ministries, Crosby Scholars, to name a few. We also have just partnered with the local Parks and Recreation and YMCA to collaborate our efforts.

Learning (Innovation) Center
The success of today's youth is largely dependent on education. So much so, that organizations such as ours wish to mentor, lead, usher in the use of mobile tools/technology, and create avenues focused on sustainable innovations. Existing opportunities to extend students glocal (global and local) reach is important not only to their personal development, but also to the economic development of their communities. The development of a productive Innovation Center begins with a digital footprint and strategic approach. Our 4C's; 1) Content, 2) Communication, 3) Community, and 4) Culture, will provide attendees the opportunity to engage with extended experiential learning using 21st century learning spaces, virtual/augmented reality, and hands on mentoring. We have had the discussions to quantify our programs position and now move forward to qualify its future narrative.

Developing rural America is a linchpin for our organization. Providing education as an investment into Rowan County, NC is a focal point. Our JLT Innovation Center will focus on education, health and wellness, and workforce development. Utilizing the following community education tracks, our focus of developing young men and women will come to fruition and be long lasting.

Area of focus for our Learning/Innovation Center
1- Teaching Inspiring Planning (TIP)
2- Leading and Empowering Advancement through Perspective (LEAP)
3- Rise Unique Leaders Evolve (RULE)
4- Personal Action Seats Success (PASS)

Our marketing strategies will be key to our ability to reach our goals. we have already been able to acquire a marketing tool, PeachJar.com, to reach every student in our entire community. This includes every elementary, middle and high school. by doing this, we can increase our clinics, private sessions, camps and tournaments.

Utilizing coaching connections at the middle school, high school, college and professional levels, will gain us the exposure to legitimize our programming. We have already connected with a few former Division 1 college coaches and players, having had a former NCAA DI coach as a guest speaker at our first camp.

Getting local community leaders to continue supporting our cause, will also improve and increase our exposure. The former Mayor and current Mayor are already fans of our vision. We have gained the of potential political leaders that are actually providing us with leads on how we can grow.

Our base is set, time is all that is needed to get to where we want and need to be.

How will we get participants?

• Antwaun Thompson is registered and certified basketball coach with CoachUP.com, Lessons.com and BasketballTrainer.com
• Word of mouth- Our recent weekly lessons, clinics and basketball camps have received raved reviews and reinforces the need for this opportunity in this community
• We will host once a month information sessions at our facility, which will be attended by invited guests (parents of players, coaches, etc).
• We will sponsor local give-a-ways at high school and middle school basketball games

Our participation levels will be the most definitive measuring tool. once we are able to acquire our own facility, we will be in a position to offer larger programming, which will allow for more planning opportunities.

We also have just partnered with the local Parks and Recreation and YMCA to collaborate our efforts. We will be operating a summer league in conjunction with the Parks and Recreation and YMCA. JLT Fieldhouse, Inc. will be the primary organizer to ensure the program stays with the confines of a mentoring program, along with the sports instruction.

We have established a gym that we are able to work out of consistently. This is key, as it allows us to showcase, if only on a small scale, our services and how beneficial they are and can be. We have begun to get word of mouth referrals that have put us in a position to actually have difficulty fulfilling the private lesson requests from week to week.

We have not been able to acquire our own facility, but are hopeful that by years' end we will be a step closer. We have not yet obtained any grants to assist with our operations and capital, but again, we hope to achieve that this year as well.

We have not yet secured the large donor base that we were hoping to at least tap into by this time in our early existence.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
