Joel Embiid Partners with Rhymes with Reason

NBA All-Star Joel Embiid invests in Philadelphia youth through education

As one of the most under-resourced big cities in the country, Philadelphia’s poverty rate is double the national average. Philadelphia 76ers center, father, and community leader Joel Embiid felt that Philly youth deserved more.

As tribute to his late brother, Embiid has launched the In Memory of Arthur (IMOA) Initiative which helps kids develop the agency and confidence needed to achieve their dreams by investing in social impact organizations.

Alongside Rhymes With Reason, IMOA has identified YEAH! Philly, Philadelphia Youth Basketball League, New Options New Opportunities (NoMo) and Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia as impactful partners.

Together these organizations form a powerful network. Joel Embiid believes Rhymes With Reason is the ‘difference maker’, uniting the four organizations via a common motivator and resource.
