History


Program accomplishments

Sports World Ministries currently has 13 "Pros" speaking in 48 states including Washington, D.C. and New York. Their current budget is 1.6 million dollars, but their goal is to grow by 23% each year which will require a 5.5 million dollar budget by the 2003-2004 year.


Needs

If you are under 18 and need help on any issues, dial 1-800-HIT-HOME - 24 hours a day, a real person will talk to you, tell you where to get help, and help give you hope. No problem is too big or too small. No hassles, just help, free. SW does not charge schools for school assemblies and depends upon financial contributions and donations from individuals, corporations, and organizations that believe in the importance of youth making good decisions. Normally, SW's school assembly forums are financed by organizations in communities for the youth. SW's forums, 3 assemblies a day for 3 consecutive days, costs about $3,600. SW usually addresses about 4,000 students an engagement. If you would like to bring a Pro to your community to speak to youth on the importance of making good choices or for information on scheduling a Sports World Ministries former Professional Athlete to speak in your school or community event, contact a Sports World Field Representative at:
