The annual Tim Brown Mentor Mini Football Camp has been scheduled for Friday, April 19, 2019, at the California Highway Patrol (CHP) Academy. Registration begins at 0730 hours and the event ends around 1500 hours. This is a one-day football camp for 100 young boys between the ages of 7 and 12 from urban, single parent, fatherless homes and is sponsored by the 9-1-1 for Kids Foundation and retired Oakland Raider and NFL Hall of Fame player Tim Brown. The event is a great opportunity to be a role model for these youths as their mentor dad for the day while they learn and interact through football training drills. This camp provides an opportunity for older, wiser, and more experienced individuals to provide support and guidance to a minor whose environment increases his chances of exposure to academic failure, gangs and violence, use of alcohol and drugs, and other at-risk behaviors.
The Tim Brown Mentor Mini Camp for Fatherless Boys, was established in 1999 to address the devastating effects of “fatherless families.” This annual event led by Tim Brown, and hosted by the CHP at its Academy in Sacramento during May each year matches 100 disadvantaged boys, 10-19 years of age, to a CHP officer who serves as their a mentor dad. Mentor and mentee participate in a football training camp just like the pros. The event assists boys absent a father in their homes and urban children who can benefit from encouragement and guidance from a caring adult.
