There’s a place kids can go to not only have fun, but to learn and be mentored.
The Tampa Skills Center hosted its Open House on August 2nd introducing its new building to community leaders, partners and funders. The Center who’s motto is “Creating Academic and Leadership Success through the Power of Sports,” completed the building renovation with the help of key sponsors like Finish Line Youth Foundation.
The 18,2500 sq ft building house a gymnasium for indoor sports like basketball and volleyball; The Academic Café; a commercial kitchen and multipurpose room.
The Academic Café is a state of the art, collaborative learning environment where students in 1st – 12th grade can participate in educational programs that positively support academic success The Café will provide interaction-learning zones that encompass collaborative group and independent work areas offered in person and virtual learning environment. Services would include tutoring, homework assistance, FSA Prep, ACT/SAT prep and College Prep classes. The Café will be managed by a State of Florida Certified Teacher and supported by corporate volunteers.
On the second level, the organization is bringing Coding, Robotics and other STEM exposure programs to our community. As well as Leadership/Life Skills programs like their Learn to Lead program for 10th and 11th graders.
The Skills Center successfully provides after school and community based programs since 2009, motivating young people to learn, change behavior and succeed in school. As a sports based youth development organization, the agency intentionally teach kids how to transfer skills learned naturally through sports and apply them to other environments like school, community and work.
The Skills Center provide its services in school and through the community, bringing in quality programs like PLUS, Soccer for Success with the US Soccer Foundation, Girls in Sports funded partially by the Women Sports Foundation and the NBA Orlando Magic’s Jr. Magic Basketball Leagues.
The Skill Center, operated by Power Couple Ken and Celeste Roberts has been extremely helpful in administering scholarships for the Braxton Daryl Johnson Last Mile Scholarship and I thank God for them.
