Full Count RBI: Making After School and Summer Count
More About Full Count RBI
Full Count RBI is Friends of Baseball's after school and day camp baseball program that teaches life skills through academic, social and physical recreation. Full Count RBI is an affiliate program of Major League Baseball's RBI (Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities) program to increase access to baseball and softball for underserved youth.
Full Count RBI returns the fun of play to the game of baseball. With active and contagious games, kids learn baseball fundamentals while getting the daily activity they require and are coached and taught by instructors who emphasize positive self identity. Full Count RBI's whole child approach also includes baseball-inspired academic and social activities that span topics like history, science, art, math, literacy, and nutrition. Participants also are taught individual and team goal-setting to help build confidence and foster a growth mindset. Participants receive a Full Count RBI kit that includes a cinch bag, water bottle, tee, hat, wiffle ball, and glove.
We have served youth at 20 school and non profit partner sites in the Portland Metro area and one Seattle area school in an after school and summer enrichment setting. We reached our goal of serving 20 schools one year early. With the generosity of our donors and supporters, at least 4 additional Full Count RBI programs will be opened in Multnomah County's Schools Uniting Neighborhoods (SUN) programs at schools or in school communities that serve a high percentage of historically underserved students (low income students and students of color).
