Passion 4 Youth, Inc. is a non-profit organization located in central NJ. Our team is made up of well educated leaders, experienced coaches and mentors whom believe that the youth need our attention and guidance.

Vision: We intend to provide the youth – throughout communities in the tri-state area – sports and educational programs that will inspire the youth to explore their potential, be innovative, healthy, confident leaders. Our goal is to make all programs affordable to every economic position. We envision a world where all youth of any circumstance hold the power to create opportunity for themselves, build their skills and become confident leaders to pursue their future goals.

What we do: We provide affordable sports & educational programs, as well as events that inspire creativity, innovation, productivity, and leadership. As well as host events that encourage philanthropy, socialization, leadership, community and healthy living.

What do we achieve:
From the basketball court to the soccer field, the tennis court to the skate park, youth sports are the ultimate classroom. Our kids learn the importance of teamwork, sportsmanship, perseverance, respect for authority and rules, and how to win with class and lose with dignity.

Founder & CEOCOACH TAYLOR
Inspire. Believe. Lead.

I BELIEVE I’m here to teach the game of basketball and that will never change. I am a mentor, passionate leader and coach who appreciates the concept of giving back.
I believe in the fundamentals and building a core foundation. I believe there’s a need to take ownership and accountability to improve. I also believe there are core values in seeing improvement and they are respect, understanding and effort.
Many coaches can teach skill but leaders and mentors can develop triple threat athletes. Athletes who work hard to achieve goals, value education and are confident leaders. Not every athlete will be a professional or play at the highest collegiate level but that doesn’t limit their success.
