Dear SAYM supporter,
South Akron Youth Mentorship requests the honor of your presence at our Fourth Annual Golf Event to be held on Monday June 16th at Ohio Prestwick Country Club.
The SAYM vision “to break generational poverty, one heart at a time” cannot succeed without friends and supporters such as you.
Attendance at our mentoring programs has grown ten percent in the last year, and we are needing to purchase our fourth 15 passenger van to accommodate our growth. Academic Incentive for Mentees (AIM) has paid out over $3,000 to high school students and significantly improved academic performance, a key component for future success. Our Youth Employment Program (YEP) initiative allows our students the opportunity to gain valuable work experience at facilities and churches with whom we are affiliated, while SAYM pays the students’ wages and provides employable training in areas such as conflict resolution, personal finance, and personal and social media etiquette.
Please support the SAYM mission “to transform worldview perspective from societal dependence to personal independence through application of Biblical principles, importance of education, necessity of excellence in vocational efforts, and life skills mentoring.”
The range opens and registration begins at 10am, lunch at 11am, and shotgun start is at noon. Dinner begins at 4:30 pm in the ballroom with over $10,000 of raffle and silent auction prizes to be won. Cash bar available all day.
Please read some of our blog posts about all the wonderful happenings God is doing with these children ages 5 through19 who live in our focused mission field along the Arlington Road corridor.
Please contact Donald C. Breece, Golf Chairman, if you have prizes which you would like to donate.
We press on.
Donald C. Breece
