  • YOUTH CAMP

    The Palmer Williams Group, along with local and national sponsors, hosts an annual Athletic Youth Camp for youth ages 5-13.

The LifeSync Academy program created by the Palmer-Williams Group (PWG), is structured to address and eliminate a number of challenges or extreme obstacles blocking the path to success for many talented but misguided youth within our communities. LifeSync Academy’s success depends on a “holistic” approach to problems of pre-teens and teenagers. The Academy will address social issues, such as alcohol and drug abuse, financial literacy, pre-marital sex, ethics, as well as the life-long value of education and the rule of law. Developing both the minds and bodies of our disadvantaged youth populations across America will ultimately result in the reduction of crime rates across the country.

The 10-week program will impact the lives of 30 youth between the ages of 9 and 14 each semester. The LifeSync Youth Development programs consist of classroom lectures and workshops, community service projects and fitness/nutritional counseling.  Programs are fully integrated wherever possible.  All programs are staffed, equipped and delivered through the PWG LifeSync Academy.

LifeSync consists of (3) distinct and contiguous programs structured by age group; Pre-Season (9 – 10), Walk-Through (11-12) and Game-Time (13 -14).  All programs will be offered up to three times per year and limited to 30 students each session. Our ultimate goal is a student-teacher ratio of 10:1 or less.

The entry-level program of LifeSync is called Pre-Season. This program is designed to build a basic understanding of the social, political, economic and psychological impact of personal choice from a 9-10-year-old perspective.

LifeSync Walk – Through is the intermediate-level program.  The program relies on specific examples taken from real-life situations that directly relate to the daily inner-city life of 11-12-year-olds.  The objective of Walk-Through is to heighten awareness within this age group that behaviors, education and personal choices made now will significantly impact the remainder of their lives.

LifeSync Game-Time is the last program element in the LifeSync curriculum. The program is designed for the early teen; prior to entering high school.  The 13-14-year-olds in this program will share and role-play personal experiences within the acceptable age-appropriate weekly topics.

In addition to LifeSync program topics, the PWG Academy will provide a 30 minute physical fitness workout program and nutritional counseling for all youth participants.  The PWG Academy will solicit volunteers or hire part-time instructors (e.g. Personal trainer and Nutritionist) to create age appropriate workouts and nutritional guidance.

LifeSync Academy will be offered at no expense to the participants or their families.

In order to offer this program free of charge, PWG relies on the generosity of individuals and businesses for financial support. All donations to the Palmer-Williams Group are 100% tax deductible. Please consider donating to this program today and be a part of history!

The Palmer Williams Group (PWG) partners with BBVA Compass bank in Mobile and with BB&T Bank in Montgomery to provide FREE youth financial literacy events for kids age 5 – 14 years old. We believe that by teaching youth early about money management, they will develop a foundation for understanding the basic skills needed to care for themselves and their community.

The youth financial literacy program includes age-appropriate activities designed to teach children about “paying yourself first”, “wants versus needs” and other important lessons.

PWG is always looking to partner with other youth organizations to share this program with as many youths as possible. Please contact us if you are a youth organization that desires to provide this program to the participants in your program.

The Prichard Cowboys is a Palmer Williams Group youth development program that provides opportunities for youth in underserved communities to participate in sports. As of 2017, the Prichard Cowboys participates in competitive team sports in both football and soccer.

PRICHARD COWBOYS YOUTH FOOTBALL

The Prichard Cowboys is proudly associated with the Mobile Youth Football Conference (MYFC), an organization that places a major emphasis on fun and enjoyment for boys ages 4 – 13 interested in playing football. The Prichard Cowboys along with MYFC encourages, fosters, and promotes good sportsmanship and physical fitness through participation in team sports.

As you may know, youth football is one of the most popular sports in America. The costs associated with participating in the MYFC are significant. Our athletes and their parents work very hard throughout the season participating in various fundraising events, unfortunately, this covers a portion of our team’s expenses. The Prichard Cowboys feel that no child should ever be turned away from any local program because of the inability to pay.

PRICHARD COWBOYS YOUTH SOCCER

More than 1.5 million kids participate in soccer, yet the City of Prichard does not have a single youth soccer team. Starting with the 2017 season, the Prichard Cowboys is committed to offering the youth in our community the opportunity to participate in soccer. The team is comprised of 20 boys and girls ages 4-8 that reside in Prichard.  Our team plays in one of the major youth soccer leagues in Mobile County.

SPONSORSHIPS NEEDED

We invite you to become a part of our Prichard Cowboys family by sponsoring a youth athlete in need of financial assistance. In doing this, you will make it possible for all of our young athletes to have a more successful season, in addition to supporting our local community. The Prichard Cowboys is one of the youth development programs that fall under the Palmer Williams Group (PWG). Because PWG is a nonprofit organization, all donations are tax deductible (#45-5438173).

Cheerleading is a huge part of sporting events at all levels of play. Cheerleaders take the sports experience to another level because they add excitement and spirit to any game day! The Prichard Cowboys cheer program was established in 2015 and is a part of the Mobile Youth Football Conference (MYFC). Our program aims to develop each athlete mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially. We welcome girls ages 4-13 to participate in this program.

Cheer registration begins in July of each year. Please contact
prichardcowboys@palmerwilliamsgroup.org for additional information.
