NFL YOUTH Financial Football

$1,380 of $4,500 goal

Raised by 5 people in 20 months
Growing up in Mississippi, I've seen many tremendous athletic talents, pushed through high school with little academic prowess, and a lack of purpose or ethics. My desire as a youth pastor is to continue to build for the future, by exposing our communities to agents of change through developing new, and engaging platforms.
One of the platforms we work with is a free football camp for youth and their moms, which is headlined by former Green Bay Packer & Superbowl winning wide receiver Eric Matthews, along with his nfl friends and alumni. This camp is held in accordance with Nickelodeon "Day of Play" and "Visa Practical Money Skills" which makes it uniquely different than any other football camp. We utilize the power of football, to give the students a learning lesson in areas such as financial literacy, character, goal setting, integrity, etc.This year we will be serving our local Air Force/ Military community, and hosting our camp, free of charge at Columbus Air Force base.

The upcoming Spring / Summer stretch will be jammed packed with free events for the kids. In addition to our weekly Wednesday night 4:13 classes (more info
request), March 7th will kick off our 6 week #SMARTMONEY: TEEN BUSINESS COURSES. The premise of this program is to allow the youth to develop a business idea (of their choosing), and to incubate it through the start up phases.
From here, we move into the summer months, where our target goal is in bringing our free NFL YOUTH &MOMS camp back into the fold. Idealistically, we will host a split camp with Columbus Air Force Base, and Tupelo Park and Rec on July 21, 2018. Thanks for all of your past support/lets do it again.

Good morning to all,
Every year, we work towards bringing different free events to our community, for the youth, that not only educates them, but makes the summer more enjoyable. One of the events that we host, is a free NFL camp, taught by professional football players, geared not just for the YOUTH,but we have some activities for the moms as well! Its football with a twist!
This year, we faced a fork in the road, as funding was limited, and I receiving military orders for Air Force Boot Camp, during crucial fund raising months... So, as we mulled our options and prayed about it, we didn't want to disappoint the kids so, we are moving forward with our free camp! In order to make it successful, we need your financial partnership! As I am out preparing to serve our country, stand with us, and help us continue to invest in our community

Weekly, we are experiencing momentum, as we experienced an initial influx of calls and texts, as well as replies to earlier social media updates. With that in mind, let's keep the momentum going! If you value the efforts of those working to make our communities better for our kids, consider this to be a WORTHY cause! Though this Air Force Boot camp has me pretty wrapped up, let us keep this momentum growing collectively...
