The Evanston Bulldogs Youth Football and Cheer leading organization (Evanston Bulldogs Youth Association), is a not-for-profit organization centralized in the community of Evanston. We have served children from all over the Greater Cincinnati area since our inception. Our demographic core of families currently resides in the less affluent areas of Cincinnati- primarily the Evanston, Walnut Hills, Downtown and Avondale areas.
While our primary events involve youth sports, we also have other activities for the youth. Some of the activities are a “Right of Passage” group for the young women and men-based at the Christ Temple Missionary Baptist Church. We sponsor various groups such as the anti-drug program, DARE program and PSI (Postponing Sexual Involvement). There is also an anti-gang component in our program. While children are our focus, we also work with indigent families on a case by case basis.
Mission: to become part of the “village” to advocate, motivate and rehabilitate our youth. To live our mission, we are dedicated to the well-being of all residents and to the development of community through education, business, and spirituality.
Purpose: Is to inspire, educate, and empower at risk youth through character building, innovative thinking and entrepreneurship.
Definition of Impact: Youth- GOOD, BAD AND LOST: We Inspire, Empower and Serve.
One of the main objectives of our youth organization is to assist in the development of strong, disciplined and self-assured youth. We feel by supporting the mental and physical growth of our children, we believe that today’s youth can become positive, strong and ambitious leaders and members of society.
We have had several participants to go on to play at the next level- high school- college and even the NFL!
While we offer youth sports as our basis of activities for children, once a child has joined our organization, we offer mentoring, life coaching, help with homework and other activities to the children active and safe.
