Academic Enrichment Program Launched
Through our partnership with the Sarasota Military Academy (SMA), we at Newtown Connection strive to honor those who serve and protect us every day. This coming Memorial weekend, we remember all those who sacrificed their lives to protect our country and freedom.
The Coach Mentors from the Sarasota Military Academy (SMA) have built quality relationships with the kids attending the Newtown Connection Program. They have made bonds that go deeper than just playing sports with them. The Coach Mentors have become people the kids look up to and aspire to be one day.
As a part of the Newtown Connection Academic Enrichment Program, we held a finance class with our partners at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Sarasota and DeSoto Counties and Regions Bank. The kids were trained on how to make smart budget choices based upon income and expenses. They learned about how different jobs pay different wages, housing costs, transportation, food, and healthcare. But most importantly, how important it is to save. We’re so proud of their work!
Newtown Connection are pleased to announce their inaugural soccer program developed by Coach Ely to provide the kids of Newtown access to all sports. The energy and enthusiasm demonstrated by the kids and our Outreach Members was a joy to behold. Thank you for your continued support
