PROS FOR YOUTH
The Pros For Youth program uses coaching, teaching and counseling methods through the powerful influence of professional athletes and other successful professionals to encourage, and motivate young people though school assemblies, football camps, one on one mentoring programs, volunteer experiences, and coaching opportunities. We encourage, by word and example the importance of developing character, by making right choices and recognizing the harmful effects of drugs, alcohol, gang activity and promiscuity. Catch The Vision provides experiences and services for over 5000 young people every year.

This program in partnership with ASU school of nursing and TOPS conducts heath rallies that provide free physicals to area athletes and workshops to students and parents informing them about the harmful effects of steroids, and other street and prescription drugs. Since 2008 CTV’s Friday Night Lights and Back 2 School have reached over 2000 young people, parents, and coaches.
UNTO THE LEAST OF THESE
Catch The Vision is a sponsor of Unto The Least of These, a homeless feeding program, and provides meals to hundreds of homeless people throughout the Valley in partnership with Safeway Inc, Shamrock Foods, Hickman Farm Eggs, and The Phoenix Dream Center.
For the past three years CTV has supported two local indigent Valley churches, families of recovering residents, and a small Navajo community by proving food, clothes, toys and other gifts for over 600 people throughout the holiday season.
