Jabari Brown is an alumnus of EOYDC and a graduate of the University of Missouri, where he studied Psychology, and played for the U of M Tigers as a Guard. Each summer Jabari comes back to EOYDC to give back to the youth as a mentor.
We are pleased to report that on March 10, 2015 Jabari joined the NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers!
Here is Jabari’s story:
“Since I was nine or ten, I attended EOYDC. I made a lot of friends there, playing basketball and going to Warriors Games. My favorite memory was the first time I played against Kiwi Gardner (current point guard for the Santa Cruz Warriors) he was one of the best players on the court. Eleven years later, he is one of my closest friends today. That’s one of the things I appreciate about EOYDC. I was able to make good friends, people you can count on. I appreciate the network I developed at the Center. I want to come back to the Center and start a summer league so I can give another child some of the special memories that EOYDC gave me.”
