“I was convinced to help DRIVE after hearing the overall vision of the organization and the work DRIVE will tirelessly put forth in order to help the youth of our community. I’ve known these guys for quite some time, but seeing the high level of passion and detail when training kids as well as adults of all ethnic backgrounds, socio-economic statuses I most definitely wanted to help and be a part of this great work.
I pray that God blesses DRIVE as an entity and all involved. The sky is the limit for this organization. I plan on contributing by bringing my passion to help the community, extending the resources I’ve gained in the social service field to DRIVE, as well as assisting any way possible for the greater good of the demographic served.
I hope that DRIVE is able to positively affect the lives of as many children of our community as possible. I see DRIVE as a constructive and safe program for youth that may not otherwise know where to go.”
Khalif grew up playing the game. While at Rufus King High School, he won back-to-back WIAA Division 1 State Championships. He went on to play for UW-Stevens Point, where he studied Sociology and played Division III Basketball, serving as a three-year starter and two-year Captain and earning 1st-team All-Conference (WIAC) honors and Team MVP as a senior.
Khalif has no plans to leave the game. Ultimately, he wants to be a college coach and continue to give back to underserved youth and their communities.
He currently divides his time between coaching AAU and High School basketball; leading and growing YES, an organization that aims to serve as a hub for socially progressive individuals and businesses aimed at mobilizing people, information, resources, and capital for the greater good of its members and society at large; and volunteering for DRIVE — specifically, coordinating events relevant to the youth we serve and helping them run more smoothly. He has excellent people skills, boundless enthusiasm, and an eye for organization.
