Summer Service Opportunities
ABF - American Baseball Foundation
In its 23rd year in offering the ABF BASIC program to under-served children, the American Baseball Foundation seeks to improve reading and math through the vehicle of sports. Students in the two ABF summer programs rotate from a reading or math station related to sports to a sport-skill station—soccer, volleyball or baseball/softball every fifty minutes during a 6.5 hour day, for one month.
The Central Alabama programs for 2019 are 4-week sessions filled with ports and reading/math, soccer, softball/baseball, volleyball for girls & boys ages 7 - 14.
