As part of his job as a professional basketball player, Bret was asked to speak to communities to promote the game of basketball and encourage others to support the team. He quickly realized that as a professional athlete you are in the spotlight and he wanted to take advantage of this opportunity to send positive messages. This is how YGB first began.

Bret speaks to thousands of young people each year sharing words of motivation, inspiration and encouragement. He uses his basketball as a way to deliver his message with an interactive style. Here is just a partial list of those who have asked Bret to speak in their communities.



The following is a partial list of many of those who have brought the message of Bret Nichols into their community. Please feel free to call any of these organizations in your area to know more about his program.
