A leading expert in the financial services industry, Kenneth Wirth oversees First Financial Resources, Ltd., as chief executive officer. Aside from work, Kenneth Wirth serves as a board member for Teamwork Foundation, Inc.

Teamwork Foundation aims to provide athletic training, college guidance, and tutoring to underserved kids in the Mott Haven section of the Bronx. The organization’s sports and academic programs stand out in an area fraught with challenges such as high unemployment and high school dropout rates.

The New York Gauchos Basketball program is one of Teamwork Foundation’s most prominent initiatives. This program offers youths an elite basketball training experience that is rooted in collegiate advancement and academic excellence. The foundation believes that by making basketball training an incentive for kids to stay in school, youths will be more motivated to perform academically.
