Do you know a football player that needs help getting into a University? Many kids get overlooked that have the drive and ability to pursue a college education through athletics but are ineligible due to academic requirements. Without sports, many of these students lose motivation to go to college all together. That's why we started Pac West Academy!
Pac West Academy is based in Eugene, OR and is the only college prep football training program in the Pacific Northwest designed to provide high school graduates a second chance at pursuing a college football career. At Pac West Academy we combine an athletic training program with academic support to help students recover their high school GPA or earn college credit to become eligible while guiding them through the process of college recruitment. In order to empower more students through education, we also started the PWA Foundation. The Pac West Academy Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that supports at-risk youth and low income students through outreach programs and by providing scholarships to attend the Pac West Academy college prep program. You can make a difference in the lives of young men in our community by helping us accomplish our mission of guiding at-risk youth to find funding opportunities to pursue higher education.
Pac West Academy was established in 2020 but we had to postpone the 2021 inaugural season for 2022, so you will be a part of the first official season! This is a remote internship with 3 meetings per week via Zoom and once a month in-person meetings at your school library.
During the off season (January-June) we have a bigger need for recruitment which looks like: marketing, event planning, graphic design, video and content creation, and sales.
When the football season starts in July, we will have internship opportunities available from July-December to get out on the field and work hands on as a Sports Information Director within the football operations team.
