The Proceeds Fund Mentoring Programs

We have a 100% High School Graduation rate and approximately 94% our mentored youths enter institutions of higher learning.

What truly makes our AAU basketball tournaments, NCAA basketball events, and all our programs so different is that, not only are they the biggest and attract top talent and so many coaches, but that the proceeds are used to fund mentoring programs.

Baylor Youth Foundation is a legally founded charity, started in 2001. It is the passion of Toi Baylor. She herself was an AAU coach and former Athletic Director and women's college assistant coach.
