What is Champion Circle:
Champion Circle is a youth empowerment program created by Give a Day Foundation (GADF) to help equip our young men with the necessary tools and guide them in a direction that will open up possibilities to build a successful future.
Champion Circle is open to young men ages 15 -19. Our program takes place over the course of 3 months June through August. Each month we have workshops and special guest speakers to assist with teaching and mentoring our young champions. Not only do we meet in a workshop setting, but the program is filled with weekly community activities also. Our program continues with one on one and group mentoring throughout the academic school year.
Some of our activities will include tours to our fire and police departments, team building activities like law enforcement basketball challenges, mind master challenge, lion club skeet shooting, career adventures, team volunteer projects, and more.
Note: Scholarships are awarded to those Champions who attend all 7 workshops.
Our workshops focus on the five areas listed below:
Identity discovery - Discovering the person in the mirror
Career development - Finding professions that could lead to a lifetime career
Health awareness - Learning the importance of being and staying healthy
Financial identity - Learning how to make wise choices with your money
Volunteerism - Gaining a better understanding of volunteering
