NB3 Foundation prides itself on being a champion of Native children’s health. The Foundation, including the NB3FIT programs, serve Native American populations and tribal nations that each have their own culture, language, history and traditions. So, for the programs to be successful, community engagement is essential.
NB3 Foundation, over the past 10 years, has directly served thousands of local Native youth in the surrounding Pueblos, Eastern Navajo Nation and Albuquerque area. One of the crowning achievements of the NB3 Foundation was the construction of a full-size soccer field for the Pueblo of San Felipe. This $2 million soccer field quickly became home to a vibrant youth soccer program serving hundreds of San Felipe youth. The NB3FIT Junior Golf program also produced high school golf champions and collegiate-bound students. Many young people who participated in the NB3FIT programs return to help coach the next generation of youth engaged in our golf, soccer and cross country programs.
In 2015, over 600 unduplicated youth ages 7-14 in the Native communities of To’hajiilee (on the Navajo Reservation), Laguna Pueblo, Santa Ana Pueblo and Albuquerque (at the Native American Community Academy) have participated in culturally-centered golf programming.
