Progression Athletics International (PAI) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. We use athletics as a platform to positively influence at-risk youth in our community and around the world by teaching life skills, accountability, leadership, the importance of education, healthy lifestyle choices, and cultural diversity.
One thing that makes PAI unique is the fact that we are 100% volunteer based, all the way from our C.E.O. down to our event volunteers. EVERY penny donated to the organization is used for the youth we serve and does not go towards compensation of any kind.
Sports are a universal language no matter your age, gender, or ethnicity. They are a high-impact, low-cost tool that can affect countless lives and inspire change in all who participate.
Today, millions of children around the world have the privilege to play recreational sports. Progression Athletics International was created with a mission to bring those same opportunities to the even greater number of at-risk youth who do not have the same opportunity.
Since 2011, we have impacted over 5,700 youth in six countries around the world. One of the main programs we offer are sports clinics both domestically and internationally. At these events we provide training, T-shirts, sports bags, wristbands, and trophies to those who demonstrate positive behavior.
Many of the children PAI serves do not have parents, have been abused or neglected and are looking for love and PAI provides this through the power of sport. Athletics has the unique power to attract, mobilize, and inspire. In order for the sport to be a success, multiple participants have to share the same vision and goal. Sports help teach life values such as respect for the opponent, competition, acceptance of binding rules, teamwork and fairness.
Nelson Mandela said it best: “Sport has the power to change the world…it has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than government in breaking down racial barriers.”
This is the platform Progression Athletics International provides to the youth we serve!
