Seth Franco March Tour

Mar 21, 2011

Hello Friends,
We just had an exciting week of school assemblies with the Harlem Globetrotters Seth Franco, we did 21 programs and schools.  check out this event and others at or
Seth Franco, former “Globetrotter”, has played for The Court Jesters, The Harlem Wizards, and in 2003 became a Harlem Globetrotter . Seth now travels using his unique basketball routine as a platform to speak encouragement with others. He has worked with such organizations as the NBA, Upward Basketball, and The Youth Alliance.

Franco has performed and shared in schools, prisons, at sporting events, and youth rallies about his life experiences. In the seventh grade, Seth wrote an essay stating that he wanted to be a professional basketball player. He has since been living that dream.

Comments from administrators:

Your presenter, Mr. Seth Franco, was engaging, entertaining and provided a very positive message to our fifth grade students. From the moment he arrived displaying his exuberance and great talent, he had the attention of our faculty and students. As an administrator that researches and arranges school assemblies, I determine the quality of the presentation based on two factors- interaction between presenter and audience, and the response following the assembly. I have to say that we are still receiving positive feedback from students, faculty and even parents about Seth’s visit. That alone speaks volumes on the impact he had on our school.

I truly appreciate your efforts and I look forward to working with you in the future.

Yours truly,

Lenny Long
Assistant Principal
Warren E. Sooy, Jr. Elementary

Once again The Youth Alliance delivers! On February 7th, 2011, Seth Franco visited our school and put on an outstanding assembly. From the time he walked into the room to the time he left, students were captivated. Seth was interactive with the students as they entered the auditorium creating a fun and comfortable atmosphere. He shared his story of adversity and it really inspired our students. We are so appreciative of The youth alliance staff for bringing another star performance to our school providing a forum for students to hear and learn about issues they are facing each day. The Youth Alliance director was in attendance as usual and never misses an assembly which speaks volumes about his dedication and commitment to the success of the program. There programs are in such high demand, we are already planning for next year’s amazing assembly for the students. Thank you so much Youth Alliance and Seth Franco. Four days later….still a buzz throughout the building. That’s what it is all about.
