Vision: Offering a pathway to personal empowerment through martial arts.
Mission: Bringing communities martial arts and boxing classes to build confidence and persistence in youth.
Here’s how: We’ll provide scholarships to kids, referred by partnering organizations, who would benefit from the disciplined, structured environment of a boxing and martial arts gym. We know many candidates already, but want to reach beyond our immediate circle. This is how we create a larger, more positive ripple effect. Long view, we see strategic alliances with organizations who share our passion for helping youth and our communities. These groups would embrace similar organizational methods, concepts, and beliefs, and operate on measurable results.
Interested? Know a child who is a good scholarship candidate? Contact us and let’s get the conversation started.
Help Us; Help Kids; Help Our Community, Help Your Organization. Many inner-city (Milwaukee-area) organizations work to help children, especially those who start life at a disadvantage, or face other troubles. We hope to partner with these groups who share a similar mission and vision.
CITY CHAMPS FOUNDATION PAYS THE GYM FEES AND EQUIPMENT FOR YOUTH WHO DESIRE TO ATTEND MILWAUKEE’S PREMIER GYMS BUT WHO DO NOT HAVE THE MEANS TO DO SO.
City Champs Community Scholarship Program (CCCSP) provides existing schools, parents and community outreach programs working with youth an alternative means of providing a structured, educational environment for youth interested in the sports of martial arts and boxing. The scholarship program provides children access to the lessons taught through the discipline of martial arts. City Champs acts as a bridge between parents, youth outreach programs and martial arts gyms.
City Champs funds yearly scholarships for gym membership fees with equipment. Children must meet weekly, monthly, quarterly and yearly targets set to maintain scholarships. These targets support the mission of City Champs, community partners and gyms.
Offered to youths ages 5 and up. Program is not limited to but targets and offers extra latitude to children from low-income families.
The concept of a “scholarship” isn’t always tied to a classroom. Learning takes place in many forms, in different environments.
Kids participating in City Champs learn invaluable life skills in the ring. Along the way, they learn the importance of enriching their minds outside the ring.
The requirement is to improve a student?s GPA, regardless of where it started.
These types of expectations obligate participants to set goals, and work hard to achieve them as they earn their position in the program. They learn other qualities, too: Discipline, respect, confidence, gratitude and more.
* Transportation: needs discussed with mentor.
** Values/Code of Conduct: Follow all beliefs and values set forth by City Champs.
***Personal development consists of personal coaching, traditional education, books,
audio, assignments and tests assigned by mentor.
Scholarships are a big piece of this solution. They?re just one, though. The most important piece, without a doubt is OUR YOUTH!
