Jalen Rose is doing good in the hood by educating inner-city black kids and empowering them to have a better future at the Jalen Rose Leadership Academy (JRLA).

Jalen created the JRLA in the area he grew up in Detroit years ago to fill the void he saw in education and adequate learning resources for inner-city kids.

Watch the video below to see how Jalen Rose launched the JRLA:
