YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIFE OF A CHILD THROUGH OUR "SPONSOR A CHAMPION" PROGRAM
WHY SPONSOR A CHAMPION?
PT&E is working to stop the "summer slide" that occurs when students lose the achievement gains they made during the school year. This deficit is especially prevalent in students from low-income families, with kids losing about 2.5 months of schooling during the summer months. Our "Serving Up Success" Program fills this gap by enriching the academic, athletic, and life skills of all participants. Support is provided through a high Coach/Tutor to student ratio of 1 to 3, giving kids the opportunity to work with qualified staff on a variety of projects. Our scholar athletes are also provided with daily fitness and plenty of fruits and veggies to ensure that they are able to play just as hard as they work!
As a sponsor, you will be personally matched with a child and have the opportunity to get to know each other through letters, as well as a quarterly update that includes a short note written by them and progress on their tennis and academic success. Additionally, your sponsorship also includes invitations to PT&E events such as our annual end of the year Sponsor-A-Champion BBQ, where you will be able to enjoy time with them and their peers.
SPONSORSHIP IS SIMPLE!
