About Us

Mission Statement

Arizona Magic Youth Outreach was formed to provide life skills and mentorship to help with mental health and its impact on families of Arizona Youth. Arizona Magic’s focus is to “Give kids a shot.”

Our Vision

Our underlying focus for each student-athlete centers around their health and well-being, which are paramount to preparing for adulthood. We will use athletics to develop our youth by learning teamwork, gaining self-confidence, and tempering respect for others. Along the way, our student-athletes will receive positive messages from our staff and volunteers, as well as exposure to past participants who have gained success in sports, business, and life. Arizona Magic Youth Outreach is dedicated to quality service and people. It is our mission to change lives through excellence.

What is Arizona Magic Youth Outreach?


• We prepare Arizona student-athletes for scholarship opportunities. Additionally, we are helping set up a future for Arizona Youth to succeed after college through our academic advisement.

• We provide mentoring and counseling services. Our team consists of corporate recruiters and executive professionals who will help develop the necessary skills to ensure successful interviews and to help land jobs in Corporate America.

• As of 2022, we have been responsible for helping student-athletes earn more than (450) athletic-scholarships since 2004, which has allowed Arizona student-athletes to further their athletic and academic careers.




• We are focusing on mentoring and providing academic advice to student-athletes in Arizona.

• The goal is to prepare them for college and life after athletics in Corporate America.

• We are working with past student-athletes on post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) gained through playing college athletics by helping them prepare for careers after sports.

• We also will be providing board-certified youth psychologists to be on call for those involved in our program. The psychologists also will be involved with many events during the year to assist with the development of coping and learning exercises for better mental health practices.



  • • Arizona Magic Youth Outreach was organized and developed by President Anthony Ray in 1998 and became a 501 (c)(3) in 2004.


  • • Arizona Magic Youth Outreach was created to aid in the development and production of Arizona student-athletes becoming pillars in the community.


  • • We help provide less fortunate student-athletes with opportunities to maximize their chances of obtaining athletic and academic scholarships while also preparing Arizona’s youth for college life and the corporate world after their playing careers.


  • • Arizona Magic Youth Outreach has collaborated with Arizona Preps to host and provide annual events, such as the Arizona Preps Fall Showcase, which is free for all Arizona high school boys/girls basketball programs. The Fall Showcase has provided opportunities for more than 4,000 student-athletes since its development in 1998.
