LIFE SKILLS PREPERATION
We are always looking for volunteers to help tudor, coach, train, and teach both students and their parents. We feel that by educating the parents, then they will also understand the importance of higher education. In turn will more actively look for programs to help prepare their children for the future. Together, they will have more success in acheiving their goals.
There are so many scholarships available in several categories besides just football. Most every sport offers them, as well as most arts, performing arts, music, accademics, and more. People think they only have one option. We want to help you get the scholarship you want to strive for. Not the one you "have" to strive for. Prepare now, to be better prepared later.
Have you ever heard the expression, "If I only knew then, what I know now?" Well that is what we want to do with todays students. Start teaching them now about the importance of good credit and how it works. The consequences of choosing the wrong friends while they are in middle and high school. What drugs does to them in a few years down the road? Why good habits are better to develope now? Why a positive attitude can make life easy? All the things that we didn't know at the time, or chose not to listen to our parents.
To empower, educate, and support parents of all underpriviledged students. To provide post secondary options to create future leaders further their education.
To enable underprivileged families opportunities to advance their physical, mental, and educational needs of their children through teaching, coaching, and mentoring. While strenghtening their communities.
To inspire and shape the future leaders to higher social, intelecutual, and moral understanding.
PREPARE FOR HIGHER LEARNING!
Programs and services we provide:
We specialize in Sports training. Particularly football, basketball, volleyball, baseball and softball to name a few. We train both boys and girls ages 10 to 17. We will be hosting multiple clinics for students regularly throughout the years. With each clinic, we want to include both a parents educational clinic, as well as a coaches clinic for less experienced coaches. Our goal is to spread our wealth of experience and resources to benefit our entire community.
Tutoring program: We offer a highly productive tutoring program that offers access to well educated college students and college professors. We feel that education is the key to success and not a focus for most student athletes today. Both in life and in sports. We also have access to other tutoring programs to increase availability.
Teaching and coaching clinics: We will start with clinics to slowly increase the knowledge of a sport training. Within the athlete, parent and coach. We've come to realize that our kids are just as talented as any. But we might not have the most experienced or informed coaches teaching our kids. Looking into the current little league systems in America. Most every league relies on parents and volunteers. Which most of the time, people volunteer because they have their own agendas or because no one else has stepped up. The current leagues also rely on online training to certify their volunteer coaches. We want to reward these volunteers with proper training. Reading a book or watching a video doesn't always do the trick. Our thought process is, "Help the coach, and we help the entire team. Not just one player." We do both and educate the parents also. All included in our clinics.
Sport tournaments: From beginner, casual, to advanced athletes. We want to match athletes against equal skill levels to provide a more fun and competitive atmosphere.
Sporting leagues: Eventually, we want to create a league(s). Something that will provide competition to test their newly developed skills against other top athletes in the state and potentially compete out of state in exisitng All Star type of events.
We intend to share our contacts with former and current players, coaches, teachers, counselors, professors, etc. Everywhere from middle/high schools, colleges, to the pros. We feel that it is important for our youth and parents to know that they are not alone. That there are many others who have gone through the same obstacles and failures that they are experiencing now. Yet have been able to persevere and become successful. That knowledge can make the impact needed to keep going. We hope to draw motivational speakers from around the world. We see ourselves providing a talent pool that will draw recruiting scouts and coaches to our clinics, tourneys, events, etc. Instead of having to work hard to promote our kids to the world. Tomorrows success must start today.
Resources we offer:
We utilize and impliment our traditional values into everything that we do at all times:
With God, we realize and recognize that everything we are is because of Him. To always remain humble, and grateful. To never take for granted the success and failures that we experience.
With family, we recognize everyone who have contributed to our success. And also those who should benefit from our success. Never forget who will be by your side if you succeed or not. Family will/should always be there no matter what. We will be your family away from home.
RESPECT! Our youth now a days lack respect for elderly people, authorities, leaders, and even their own parents because society and media teaches this. Our ancestors have always instilled respect in the islands from infantcy to adult hood. Our goal is to continue that tradition for the benefit of our prosperity.
Customs: For many of us from the islands. Our grand parents are the last to speak the language, to know our geneolgy, the dances, our traditions and customs. We want to provide classes to teach all these things. But also to provide a venue to utilize and show our customs at events like our annual Samoan flag day ceremony. We are proud of our culture and we don't want to see it die with our ancestors.
