The Grand Rapids Wolverines was created by a service-connected disable veteran that was seeking the ability to continue serving the community. We work with young, underprivileged, disadvantaged and at-risk student-athletes. Our mission is to provide mentorship and create positive experiences through the use of sports. Our goal is to increase the pursuit of education, combat the effects of fatherlessness, and subdue the effects of poverty. With our efforts, we aim to decrease the crime rates and increase the level of academic achievement in the targeted areas of the city.
