Across the country schools are closing and teachers are being laid off sending signals to our youth that we as adults don't really care about their education.  How can we motivate young people to be enthusiastic about school? Some organizations are using this summer to instill a vision of hope among the youth. Rainbow PUSH has created a summer basketball league and includes academic preparation as well as athletics in its program to prepare young people for success. Coach Joe Miller explains why the program is rapidly growing in popularity and how students are being prepped to go to college through this experience.
