In 2015 we kicked off the Hoops 4 Life tournament with a Native American youth leadership conference. The all-day conference was held at Turning Point Campus in Omaha. Presentation topics included empowerment, goal-setting, suicide awareness, substance abuse prevention, and healthy relationships. Choctaw Nation-member and basketball slam-dunk phenom Kenny Dobbs spoke at the conference and showcased his dunking skills at the tournament. Mr. Dobbs is a former chairman of the Arizona State Youth Advisory Council for Alcohol and Substance Abuse Prevention, and has launched a national program to combat Native American youth suicide.
