In January 2009, we initiated a youth sports sponsorship program with multiple baseball and soccer leagues that now spreads throughout Pinellas, Pasco, Sarasota and Hillsborough counties. The premise of the sponsorship was to create an integrated and sustainable community program by helping support local youth athletics.
The sponsorship has positively affected these youth sports leagues who,
because of our recent economic conditions, have been forced to withdraw
scholarships for their players because of lack of sponsorship.
Achieva's sponsorship has rejuvenated these leagues and their ability
to offer low-cost registration fees and scholarships to the less
The sponsorship has positively affected local branch employees, as some are parents whose children are involved in the sponsored leagues. This has built internal loyalty within our organization as well.
