Young people, particularly those from Sarasota’s disadvantaged households, need extra guidance in order to reach their full potential. In 2015, the Foundation helped the Boys & Girls Clubs of Sarasota County launch their Newtown Estates Park Club, which offers summertime and school-year programming for the otherwise unsupervised youth in the neighborhood. A total investment of $827,655 from launch through 2022 continues to provide the resources necessary to serve the highly vulnerable youth population in Newtown Estates Park.

The physical, social and life skills Club members develop enable them to complete their education and become productive, caring, responsible citizens in our community. The area has seen significant improvement in members’ grades in school, fewer reports of bullying outside of school, and more parents seeking employment because their kids have a safe place to go.
