COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION DEVELOPMENT

Amateur Advocate Association’s community association development program works to effectively improve communities by empowering the parents and citizens who live there. AAA establishes itself as a central point of contact, informing and educating parents and citizens regarding the various programs offered in the community via AAA-affiliated organizations. In addition, AAA representatives serve these communities by acting as a liaison between community leaders and local, state, and/or federal officials who might supply assistance or resources. We also serve as active advocates to the local business community, faith-based community, and so forth. We don’t just provide communities with the programs they need; we give them the voice and advocacy necessary to establish and sustain them!

OUR STRUCTURED RECREATIONAL STRATEGY

Amateur Advocate believes in the constructive value of sports, the arts, and other activities! We have seen firsthand how participation in such programs often allow youth to discover their talents, abilities, communication skills, passions, relationship-building skills, and so on. For this reason, AAA is devoted to helping those wishing to establish athletic programs, arts programs, and other youth-related activities.

We also work on behalf of citizens hoping to introduce constructive recreational programs into their communities by helping to match them with existing organizations that provide the programs they desire. We work with these organizations to help them expand and strengthen their existing programs, as well as possibly providing new ones. We ensure that all facilities and equipment are safe and that the instructors involved have passed any necessary background checks, are highly qualified, and (when necessary) certified.

THE NEED FOR AAA's PROGRAMS

Every child is born with specific gifts, talents, and abilities. Every young man and woman has something they are, or could potentially be, passionate about. The question is not whether or not a child has talent and a passion; the question is whether or not they will discover and develop them.

Unfortunately, many of the opportunities that exist for youth to participate in sports, arts programs, and so forth require resources beyond the financial means of many families. In addition, budget constraints are forcing more and more schools to cut back on extra-curricular programs. The result is a population of youth from lower-income families who are missing the chance to engage in valuable, character-molding activities.

At Amateur Advocate, we believe that the programs we offer play a key role in exposing children to the opportunities they need to discover their passions and abilities. The associations and programs we help establish and support bridge the gap between the youth who will define tomorrow’s society and the experiences that willequip them to positively impact it.
