LeBron James is making big moves on and off of the basketball court.

The NBA three-ring champ is partnering with Akron Public Schools to help at-risk children. Together they will open up a school for third and fourth graders in 2018 and by 2020 it’ll cater to first through eighth grade.

The school will improve the current curriculum, adding more hands on activities that focuses on science, technology, and math. Reported on The Root, James believes that if he doesn’t do something, the youth’s future could be in jeopardy.

“This school is so important to me because our vision is to create a place for the kids in Akron who need it most—those that could fall through the cracks if we don’t do something.”

“We’ve learned over the years what works and what motivates them, and now we can bring all of that together in one place along with the right resources and experts. If we get to them early enough, we can hopefully keep them on the right track to a bigger and brighter future for themselves and their families.”
