Yonah is the Founder and Director of Dream To Achieve and Community Program Coordinator at Bard College, which he graduated from in 2012 with a degree in Sociology. He grew up all over New York in parts of Brooklyn, Queens, and Long Island. He has a lifelong passion for the game and played 4 years at Bard College, where he was a two-year captain and starter at point guard. As much as Yonah loves playing, he has always enjoyed teaching the game and the impact it can make on people even more. This led him to a two year stint as an assistant at Bard where he worked as an assistant basketball coach, where he helped oversee scouting, recruiting, and player development. Yonah founded Dream To Achieve his freshman year at Bard and has continued to oversee its growth over the past 6 years, which includes its every day presence it has in Hudson and its growing programs in Kingston. He sees an immense potential in the youth people he works with both on and off the court and takes great pride in helping them discover it.
