TEAM New England

TEAM New England is a youth development organization that employs academic, mentoring, athletic, and service-learning programming that positively impacts the development of the youth in our community.  

They strive to use basketball as a way to bring student athletes out of their comfort zones, provide a safe haven for at-risk youth, expose the community to high academic institutions, and offer experiences youth would otherwise not have.  

TEAM New England was founded in 2016 by Greg Hill and Isaiah Davis. 

Greg Hill, Co-Founder

Greg Hill is life-long resident of Boston and the co-founder of TEAM New England, a youth basketball and mentoring program that serves over 100 youth ages 10-17 years living primarily in Dorchester, Roxbury and Mattapan.  

Greg also serves as the Senior Class Academy Team Leader at Jeremiah Burke High School. He oversees student attendance and behavior, implementation of academic policies, and student development for all Seniors at the Burke. Greg also works very closely with the Early Warning Indicator Team to proactively support students facing challenges or trauma, and he supports restorative justice.  

Previously, Greg was a program director at the Dorchester Youth Collaborative for 11 years, and in 2013 won the Root Cause Social Innovator award for creating “Safe City Academy,” which enrolled gang and court-involved youth ages 16 to 19 in a GED preparation/work program.
