Donate to our after-school Character & Leadership program, and we can impact more lives.
We are changing the culture on elementary school campuses in the Sacramento region.
By showing your support through a monthly donation, you are contributing to something bigger than yourself. Our mission is to provide under-served youth with coaching in three core areas: Academics, Fitness, and most importantly, Character and Leadership skills. When we invest our time with these students, good things happen. Behavior issues in the classroom drop off, and students are spreading inclusion, and learning that helping others brings many personal rewards.
Hear what the principal at Skycrest Elementary has to say about the positive changes on their school campus.
What does our program look like?
A team of College Student Coaches coach our young Playmakers after school for 90 minutes
- 30 minutes of Reading
- 30 minutes of Fitness
- 30 minutes of Character and Leadership Development
We work from a written curriculum, and work with the needs of each campus we serve.
Our organization gains much needed cash flow for providing consistent programs when you donate monthly.
For each young Playmaker (Lil’ Pup) in our program, it takes around $5/day to provide tutoring assistance with trained coaches, curriculum tools, snacks, field trips, and other items needed for day-to-day operations.
You can donate in any increment that is comfortable with you. $100/month would pay for one student over the course of the next academic school year. We love visitors! Feel free to drop-in and meet our Lil’ Pups and Coaches. You can see a list of our program locations here.
Please download our donation form so we can confirm your donation with a receipt. Complete and return by email, or print and return by postal mail.
Playmakers programs are having a lasting effect in the community. Civic groups in the region are stepping up and pitching in.
Please consider a donation. If you would rather donate your time, please contact us here.
