We are committed to helping those in need by providing athletic, academic, mentoring, and financial opportunities to impoverished youth and their families. At Barwis Methods, we deeply desire to utilize our resources and relationships to help those in need in the most practical, tangible ways possible. Athletic Angels was born from this desire, started years ago by Mike Barwis in his days as a collegiate coach when he would develop relationships with impoverished kids who lived near the stadium. He would connect them with his athletes, ensure they received gifts and food during the holiday season and provide ways for them to experience joy and mentorship with high-profile role models. Today, Athletic Angels not only continues these traditions but also has on-going relationships with foster-care facilities, hosts weekly training sessions and exciting large-scale events for youth, sponsors sport-training camps and is working with the federal government to expand nationally to create even more opportunities to change the lives of youth in need.
