At Green Street Academy we were fortunate enough to begin an Athletic Program as an Independent Charter School in 2015. Being independent has given our teams opportunities to travel to schools across the state, Pennsylvania, DC, West Virginia, and Virginia over the last 5 years. Having the opportunity to travel outside of Baltimore City has proven to be a huge benefit to our student-athletes by exposing them to different environments, camaraderie built through traveling, and the ability to compete against teams outside of their city. They are also able to represent the West Baltimore Student-athlete, which they have done a phenomenal job of over the years. Although there are lot of benefits, we do not receive any financial support from Baltimore City Public Schools for our Athletic Program. Our program is solely supported by fundraising.
Our Athletic Program has done chocolate and popcorn fundraisers, car washes, and we even operate two vending machines at school to maintain our athletic program. Our students and staff have worked very hard to keep our athletic program alive.
On August 22nd, 2019 we were fortunate enough to host Laguna Beach (California) for a football game. They were so impressed by our students and staff that they have invited us to come to California for a football game in 2020. As you could imagine, this would be an experience of a lifetime for our student-athletes. Laguna Beach has already done the leg work by setting up the trip with a high school sports travel agency. The 4-day trip includes a trip to Disneyland, multiple college tours, a beach day, and all their meals to name a few.
Our biggest obstacle is raising the funds to give our student-athletes this experience. AT $1,899 per person, we will need to raise a total of $75,960 You can help us send our 2020 Football team to California next year!
Your support is crucial to our efforts to raise the funds for this trip. If you’re able, we’d love it if you could donate to help us achieve our fundraising goal. Thank you in advance for your contribution.
