NATIONAL OPPORTUNITY LEAGUE
Ending Generations of Hopelessness
National Opportunity League (NOL) through the sport of Opportunity has one mission: End Generations of Hopelessness by teaching the Value of A Life and focusing on the development of Foundational Skills, Champion Mindsets and Economic Geniuses. Many of America's young Black males have been systematically oppressed, abandoned by Black men, robbed of true leadership and left behind to die physically or struggle mentally.
NOL's primary players are black males, ages 12 to 24, and are coached by Veterans and Barbers. The NOL selected Veterans for their common strengths but equally important was the ability to provide them with a great income, while providing a dire service.
"With access to the right resources, people can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential". Bruce Carter
Based on ten plus years of trials, studies and primary data, NOL was formed in 2018 to address the path of success for black males in underserved communities. The research revealed the current generation perceives the first path of success is through sports and when sports fail to fulfill success, many black males turn to the hustle game or music industry.
The NOL seeks to address deep poverty, social injustices, environmental tragedy and the falsehood that talent based sports is the answer for black males to achieve financial success. Since sports definitely plays an important role in our current society, NOL caters to elements of little league, collegiate and professional sports.
NOL will coach, mentor and counsel black males ages 12 through 24 based on a 12 month season. NOL utilizes veterans and barbers to serve as CMC's (Coach, Mentor, Counselor). At the end of each season national champions are crowned and CMC's of the year are announced.
NOL THREE PILLARS
The foundation for success starts with an adequate education; skills that go beyond basic academics.
Over the years youth education has failed a growing number of students. NOL teaches practicality, common sense, consequences, servant-hood and civic engagement. NOL through its strategic partnerships will create a more conscious, caring and wealthier generation.
Traditionally entrepreneurship has been the backbone of America's thriving economy, especially in minority communities.
NOL focuses on creating opportunities for rural and urban players by providing
world-class training in areas like business development, QuickBooks, financial literacy, marketing, negotiations, merchandising, project management and customer service. Each player will earn a minimum of $500.00 per month with unlimited income potential.
Entertainment plays a big role in the influence of youths' mindset in today's world.
NOL believes that in order to change the course of entertainment we must empower our youth to become the next generation of entertainers. Equipping youth to create positive messages is our starting point.
