Dear Principals:

Gateway To Opportunity Youth Foundation provides student-athletes with a place to train, learn and relax after school.  GTO also offers academic training and passing skills. Many services to our student-athletes including one-on-one tutoring, help with homework, academic monitoring and support, SAT Prep courses & practice tests, and NCAA collegiate recruiting services.  In addition to athletic and academic training which will pioneer to open other training centers that cater to student-athletes’ academic needs as well as athletic. 

The well being of our student-athletes and your school students is of our highest concern.  At Gateway To Opportunity Youth Foundation we emphasize the importance of a sound body, mind and soul.  We emphasize the importance of education and of attending college directly after high school. Our hope is to increase graduation rate by at least 80-90% within the next 3 years.  The GTO is not just filled with athletic trainers, but we are teachers, mentors, and counselors.  Student-athletes who participate in the programs offered at GTO become better students, better athletes, and better people to be able become more effective leaders.

All Student-Athletes, regardless of age, level, or ability, are welcome to join the GTO. Student-Athletes, parents, teachers, principals and anyone else who takes a strong interest in the lives of our youth are encourage to schedule a time to participate in different activities at GTO.   

Many public post-secondary schools have negative publicity regarding graduation rates and attendance of students.  We would promote a more positive image of the public school system through a variety of sources that allow others to understand the investment of encouraging student-athletes to train academically and athletically.  Parents want the best for their children and children want the best in their lives.  Now is the time to encourage your student-athletes that you want the best for their families and themselves.
