The Sound Mind Sound Body (SMSB) Foundation-a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization-is a leading mentor of students in under-served communities across America. SMSB is dedicated to reducing high school dropout rates while increasing college readiness and scholarship obtainment among students through extracurricular activities.
The Sound Mind Sound Body (SMSB) Foundation was founded in Detroit, Michigan in 2004 using sports as a vehicle to connect with students to learn that equal amounts of energy must be applied to both books and ball. Our Sound Mind Sound Body curriculum combines academics, athletics, and life skills development training for both students and parents to create well rounded families that understand this formula for a successful life. Our program mission is to improve annual student persistence rates, increase high school graduation rates, and increase enrollment in programs of postsecondary education.
