Are you ready to change the world of a young person?

Visit The PlaymakersWhen you donate to Playmakers programs, you help change the lives of kids in disadvantaged communities. The Playmakers Character and Leadership Academy has three core components to empower young persons to overcome life’s challenges and change their perspective on their future.

Academics, Fitness and Character Development are the tools we use to give struggling youth a pay-it-forward attitude.

Please donate today to help a young person.

Every contribution, big or small, gives us the ability to continue our mission of helping at-risk students in under-served communities. Our programs use character-based curriculum with trained coaches (local college students) who mentor the students. Your support becomes an investment in the community – changing the culture on the school campus, and at home.

Parents, Principals and Teachers tell us they see a change for the better in students from our program. The students we help have limited resources, but the types of things we teach don’t cost anything. The Playmakers Creed is the core of our curriculum which teaches positive character development, teamwork and engaging in volunteerism in their communities.

The Playmakers has programs at elementary sites throughout the Sacramento region, hear what this Principal has to say about their campus culture shift after attendance at The Playmakers Academy.
