Polo is committed to giving back to his community. In 2019, he launched an AAU basketball team in his hometown of Chicago to help keep youth out of trouble. He says he launched his Chicago Grizzlies team after visiting an elementary school in the neighborhood and the kids informed him that they never had any accessible sports programs. At the time of the launch, he said, “I feel like it’s really important just to show the kids something different, because being on the block or in the neighborhood 100 percent of the time, be a waste of time.”
