My Students

My students are all currently spending time in a juvenile jail. They are focusing on their education as their ticket to succeed in life. But there are not many options for them when it comes to physical education.

My students may have done wrong in the past, but they are wanting to make changes in their lives.

My students need to have a positive outlet for their energy during their physical education class. My students are all hard workers. They deserve to have a fun outlet for their energy during their physical education class.

My Project

We are requesting basketballs and footballs. We have a field for our students to play on, but no balls for them to utilize. Our students love playing basketball and football and participating in group sports. We are hoping to build their sportsmanship skills, as well as help them exercise and discover the benefits of good health.

Our students need to be shown the possibilities that exist in the modern world, as they face many hardships in their lives.

We hope to prepare our students for education beyond high school. The basketball and football programs will help them find a positive outlet for their energy. We hope that they might choose to continue this outlet once they are released from the jail in which we teach.
