WHAT'S AN EVENT WITHOUT PURPOSE?
In 2022, we announced that from the Sneaker Ball Lex success, Sneakers With Everything Project Inc (SWEPI) was created.
Sneakers With Everything Project Inc. is a youth development nonprofit organization that is dedicated to preparing high-school students of color for life after high school by using sneaker culture as a tool to develop core life skills, financial literacy, and mental health awareness.
Our mission is to give students the chance to become their best selves, gain the skills necessary to succeed and provide the guidance and support they need to take the next step in their lives. We are committed to giving our students a chance that most of us wish we had in our teenage years.
The SWEPI board consists of individuals who not only have an affinity for sneakers, but an even greater drive to push the success of students of color here in Lexington, KY.
SWEPI is dedicated to helping young people succeed. We are fundraising for four initiatives in 2024, allowing us to help our youth reach their full potential. Check out our initiatives:
