World Baseball Outreach

Hear About the Heart of Our Mission at WBO

World Baseball Outreach $399,000 To Go

The Reason

Principle: The issue is every child has a desire to know “who am I and what is my purpose in life?”

Past: Historically, many end up living their lives by trial and error while some have sought their true destiny.

Present: Presently, a large number of our youth live in survival mode not knowing what lies ahead. Few believe they have the ability to control their future, or understand their purpose.

Proposed: Youth and young adults working through teamwork are empowered and mobilized to develop the resources within their own country in order to help themselves, the people around them and the nation.

Participation: Through teamwork, World Baseball Outreach while working in conjunction with others, has developed an effective method to carry out the vision. This approach can then be duplicated to promote leadership, prosperity and hope one communities locally and internationally.

The Goals

Opportunity: Provide inner city youth with the opportunity to participate in sports, batting cages Tulsa, nutrition and exercise programs, after school homework help, and summer programs.

Playing Fields: Build and help maintain playing fields and batting cages Tulsa to provide a safe and fun playing environment.

Excitement: Actively engage and spark a new excitement in our youth.

Relationships: Equip our youth with Christ-like values, strong leadership skills and enduring relationships through our Christian mentors.

Statement of Need

World Baseball Outreach provides vital programs like batting cages Tulsa and services to our Tulsa youth and their families. The program is growing and expanding every year. Educational support through after school tutoring, mentoring, nutrition awareness, and sports camps will draw in area youth instilling a sense of ownership, empowerment, and continuity to all participants. WBO overcomes many life obstacles many of the youth and their families face. WBO provides scholarships to families that go towards covering costs of league fees, instructional clinics, and equipment needed to participate and access to certified coaches and volunteers. Baseball and softball fields are provided in strategic areas of the city to keep driving to a minimum. WBO’s high level volunteer base provides tutoring, batting cages Tulsa, nutrition awareness classes, and fitness classes after school and during summer camps. Below are some hard facts about the poverty in our city, the barriers our families of low income face, and truth about the percentage that a low income child will go to college.

World Baseball Outreach Programs and Services will help provide the opportunity to underserved youth and their families in Tulsa to enrich their lives and pursue education through a rigorous program of athletic training, batting cages Tulsa, health and nutrition, academic support, and social empowerment. The program combines responsibilities in the classroom, athletics, and social/community interaction projects to assist young participants in developing life skills and character assets that will create meaningful and measurable changes in their immediate and future lives. The program also strives to create strong families and active community involvement. WBO addresses the needs of low income and single parent families.

Academics and life skills education is our main focus. It’s not about baseball & softball or even batting cages Tulsa. WBO will help guide a young athlete on a life path that balances the mind and the body and spirit. WBO will show that opportunities can exist for all athletes, regardless of their economic or social situation if they perform responsibly in school working to score the best grades possible. WBO provides the best guidance, mentoring, tutoring, and the additional education instruction to show our youth how a dream of being an elite athlete can lead into a higher education.

World Baseball Outreach invites churches, families and local businesses to invest in our youth through volunteering and mentoring or through financial support. We have several unique opportunities to get in the game and batting cages Tulsa while helping WBO develop student-athletes who are committed to achieving excellence, on the field, in the classroom and the community. Your investment can help us continue to increase the number of lives touched by our services.
