From reading, to tutoring in specific subjects, a core activity in all the Academies is nurturing kids of all ages to celebrate the joy of learning.
From beauty salons for the girls and barber shops for the boys, to myriad activities to help young adults compete in the world — life skill activities provide life-long tools.
Music. Painting. Video creation. Creative writing. Acting. You name it — our Deputy Sheriffs, staff and special guests create opportunities that many of the children aren’t able to get in their school programs. And we sure have fun doing it…
Athletics are an extraordinary conduit to inspire confidence, accountability, social skills — opportunities to create powerful personal relationships with peers and mentors.
The art of giving is a fundamental pillar in our Youth Academies. Field trips and activities create opportunities for kids (and their families) to experience the joy and reward of giving.
Fun and Recreation
Our Sheriffs, Academy Coordinators, and volunteers all believe ‘fun is good.’ We create field trips to ball games, we go on fabulous hikes, we play games in the Youth Academies — all fueling extraordinary relationships between the kids, with our Sheriffs… while building social and life skills.
