Omaha Talons, Inc.

The Omaha Talons Academy utilizes the sport of basketball to provide a unique intervention and education program to South Sudanese young men; a demographic missed by many other Omaha community programs. The Omaha Talons Academy is an after-school mentorship-based basketball program. The program seeks to foster community building and engagement opportunities, leadership development, and the chance to develop interpersonal skills needed to succeed in a multicultural society. To assist Omaha Talons, Inc. in reaching these goals, the OVG grant funds will be put towards gasoline for year-round transportation, nutrition support, youth registrations in league play and tournaments, and entrance fees for youth enrichment activities.
