The Midnight Basketball Leagues will aim to attract young men ages 17 to 25 to offer them a healthy activity and a safe place to gather. During league sessions, the young men will also be able to connect with community resources such as help with recovering a driver’s license or finding employment, and they will be able to interact with police, who will offer mentoring opportunities.

The entities involved in planning the leagues include Milwaukee Public Schools, City of Milwaukee, Milwaukee Police Department, Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission, Milwaukee Bucks, City of Milwaukee Office of Violence Prevention and Running Rebels.
