  • 1980

    1980

    Victor Barnett saw Milwaukee gang leaders recruiting youth from the neighborhood and became concerned. In response, he utilized the sport of basketball to mentor youth in the community to keep them away from gangs, violence, and other negative influences.

  • 1980-1995

    Early Years

    For 15 years, Victor was a mentor and coach to hundreds of youth, funding his efforts by selling t-shirts out of his car. He made sure the youth were successful not only on the court, but at home, school, and in the community.

  • 1996

    Non-Profit Status

    In 1996, RRCO became a 501(c)(3) non-profit. This allowed RRCO to scale its mentoring work and interface with the child welfare system.

  • 1998

    MKE County Partnership

    In 1998, Milwaukee county engaged RRCO to provide service to youth involved in the Juvenile Justice System. These partnership programs emphasize mentorship, employment, accountability, and positive decision-making.

  • 1999

    Permanent Home

    In 1999, RRCO moved into its W. Fond du Lac location; purchasing the Lindsey Heights building in 2005. This location allowed RRCO to fill a critical gap in quality after-school programs in the area.
