Jamar Hill, Founder of Gamers Baseball Alaska/RBI Alaska, is a former professional baseball player and current youth coach whose lived experiences empowers him to provide access to athletic resources and experiences that have real world value outside of sports. Jamar Hill works with boys and girls ages 8-18 living primarily in the Mountain View neighborhood of Anchorage, Alaska. Mountain View has been recognized at times as the most diverse neighborhood in America which includes White, African American, Latin American families, Native Alaska, Asian and Polynesians families amongst many other ethnic groups. Poverty, civic design, as well as the geography of Alaska create a condition that blocks access for these kids to participate. Jamar Hill convenes hard conversations involving race and equity that stimulate increasing resources being directed toward sustainable support impacting Anchorage’s most diverse and most underserved kids. Jamar’s experience traveling the country as a pro player and taking on the challenges of creating subsidized sports facilities and programming have offered him a unique perspective of how the issues he’s taking on in Alaska are common systemic problems on a national level.
