My name is Andrew Fair, 2012 Business Management graduate from the University of St. Francis, founder of YouthKinect, and current professional basketball player. I was born and raised on the south side of Chicago in the Roseland community. It was a tough environment. I witnessed things a child should not have to experience. Fortunately, my family did not allow me to become a victim of my circumstances. I was one of few from my community to graduate high school and college, and to live my dream of being a pro basketball player, having experienced over 5 countries at 28 years old.

 

Outside of my passion for basketball, I always wanted to own a business, but I also knew that I wanted to provide a service where I give back to those who come from communities such as the one I grew up in. I was fortunate to earn an athletic scholarship, but with 11 brothers and sisters, it was tough putting everyone through college. While playing in Lithuania, I developed the concept for YouthKinect. There are too many kids with the physical talent and academic abilities, but are simply unaware of the resources available to them. In my heart, I strongly believe that if and when YouthKinect goes viral, it will help a lot of kids and will improve our communities in Chicago and across the USA.
