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!
The City Champs Mentoring program focuses on the following three areas of development:
Personal development includes activities that improve awareness and identity, develop talents and potential, build human capital and facilitate employability, enhance quality of life and contribute to the realization of dreams and aspirations.
Progress monitoring is used to assess students’ academic performance, quantify their rates of improvement or progress toward goals, and determine how they are responding to instruction.
Engaging in the community enables students to acquire life skills and knowledge, as well as provide a service to those who need it most. We want our students to be active members of their community.
