The civic groups in Sacramento and Rancho Cordova are generous partners, helping to fund our after-school literacy programs. We would especially like to thank the Sacramento Optimists who are teaming up with us for our annual Tri Tip Dinner where we showcase our literacy program.

We are proud to announce our partnership with Playsmart in Omaha, Nebraska.
Playmakers and Playsmart are combining the best of both their programs into an opportunity for students to improve their reading skills and learn about honor, leadership and character. Playmaker Harrison Phillips is heading up this program in his hometown because he cares about his community. Thank you to Derek Leathers, John Manna and Harrison Phillips, we are proud to be on your team.
Three new after school program locations have begun this month!
Due to our generous sponsors, Playmakers has been able to expand our after school academics program. Students enrolled in The Playmakers program are accelerating their reading grade levels, and learning core values of character and leadership. If you would like to see our program in-person, we welcome you to visit one of our sites. Our coaches are happy to answer your questions and introduce our students.

Playmakers has kicked off its after school reading/sports program and the kids are doing tremendously well.
Coach Komar has had the students’ reading assessed, and individualized programs are now prepared for each student. Our goal is a jump in reading levels (beyond normal fall progressions) during the fall semester.
Our Sac State students are doing an outstanding job as instructors and our trained volunteers are making the classroom and sports activities a great experience. We are using Sac State fraternity members who are serving in the community and mentoring kids s they want to make a positive contribution in the community.
Our programs now have a “waiting list” for kids wanting to participate in the next class and we will be adding schools in the winter semester is well. Stay tuned for updates!
