Who are We ?
Delray Beach Sports Exhibitors is a local organization founded by members of the Delray Beach community to empower youth through academic support and sports.
With the help of community volunteers and business partners, we offer a mentoring program that includes tutoring, regular contact with parents, life skill development, college preparation, and career planning.
The founders, volunteers, business partners, and celebrity athletes have come together with a single goal: To build a bridge to a bright future for the youth of Delray Beach. We invest in the Delray Beach community because we are from the community.
What we do ?
Meet Our Productive Community Members
Professional athletes like Brandon Flowers (San Diego Chargers), Jayron Hosley (NY Giants), Alfred Morris (Washington Redskins), Abel Trujillo (UFC) and more have chosen to support Delray Beach Sports Exhibitors because they understand the many obstacles that our youth face on the path from childhood to productive community members. Our celebrity athlete partners know that being a role model is more than being famous on television. They see the founders’ vision for the youth of Delray Beach, and that’s why they are involved in person to teach the youth how dedication and self-discipline will pay off.

3. Can you explain DBS’s impact in the community?
Every week over 90 youth come to Pine Grove Park for mentoring, sports training, and a free meal. For many of those children, it is the only male leadership they have had all week and the only meal they have eaten that day. High school graduates who have come through DBSE programs have gone on to four-year colleges and trade schools all over the state and country. Several homes in neighborhoods all over Delray Beach have received landscaping makeovers done by high school age youth as part of a community service component.
4. What celebrity athletes are involved, and why did they choose to partner with DBS?
Professional football players Brandon Flowers, Preston Parker, Jayron Hosley, Alfred Morris and more have chosen to support DBS because they understand the many obstacles that our youth face on the path from childhood to productive community members. Our celebrity athlete partners know that being a role model is more than being famous on television. They see the founders’ vision for the youth of Delray Beach, and that’s why they are involved in person to teach the youth how dedication and self-discipline will pay off.
