The Mighty Oak Youth Project Launches to Improve Access to Soccer for Area Youth
Ann Arbor, MI, May 15, 2018 --(PR.com)-- The Mighty Oak Youth Project is a new nonprofit organization based in Ann Arbor with an aim to increase accessibility and engagement in soccer for the youth of Washtenaw County. Through its cooperation with area youth clubs, TMOYP will provide scholarships for club soccer for families in need. The program has an initial goal of raising $10,000 for scholarships to be provided for the 2018/19 soccer season.

In addition to club scholarships, The Mighty Oak Youth Project will provide access to camps and clinics put on by partner club AFC Ann Arbor, and equipment through donation events and from corporate partners.

"We know the costs of travel soccer can be prohibiting and this is just one way to disrupt that pattern," says Bilal Saeed, executive director of TMOYP. The high costs of club fees and other expenses like equipment and uniforms is a barrier to underserved youth for taking part in high level soccer. Until changes in the structure of youth soccer in the United States take place, scholarships are a way to help a small number of kids break into the sport at a higher level than local recreational leagues provide.

The organization has already provided financial support or equipment for Huron Women's Varsity Program, Saline Women's Varsity Program, Dicken & Ebberwhite Elementary schools and the Umhlaba Vision Foundation.

For news on The Mighty Oak Project, to donate, or to apply for a scholarship, please visit the website at tmoyp.org. Scholarship applications are due by June 10th.

The Mighty Oak Youth Project is a 501(c)3 organization and all donations are fully tax deductible.
