South Shore Drill Team is actively seeking sponsorship of individual members and the team. Corporate sponsors supporting the group demonstrate their commitment to improving the lives of inner-city youth and building a sustainable future for the organization guiding them.
Alignment with the team helps companies raise their visibility with an urban demographic through a group that is well-respected in the community.
|Donors, churches, and civic organizations can sponsor an individual youth by contributing to the costs of team membership. It costs about $1,500 a year for younger children and $3,000 to provide older teens the experience of being part of South Shore Drill Team. In addition to providing each child with a marching uniform, performance equipment, and costumes for stage shows, an individual member sponsorship covers the significant costs of travelling to performances and providing educational support. Older members who have earned leadership positions receive employment training and a small stipend, and those whose families struggle to provide for them receive bus fare, haircuts, winter coats, and other basic items. As a sponsor, you would receive letters from your youth and opportunities to meet them at events or a rehearsal.|
