Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Lakewood Jr. Spartans seeks to provide fun athletic learning opportunities for children while emphasizing the importance of academic success. Specifically, Lakewood Jr. Spartans seek to familiarize players and spirit participants with the fundamentals of football, cheerleading, and dance. Lakewood Jr. Spartans strives to inspire youth, regardless of race, creed or national origin, to practice the ideals of sportsmanship and physical fitness.
The Lakewood Jr. Spartans Youth Association, Inc. (LJS) was established in 1972 as a charitable organization designed to benefit the youth within the city of St. Petersburg, Florida. LJS is registered with the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) organization. Currently serving over 400 youth annually, LJS strives to make an impact on the lives of the participants and the community as a whole.
Through the volunteer efforts of many people, and the receipt of goods, services, and finances from our community, we are able to provide a program that builds character, pride, and integrity in our athletes. Our goal is not only to provide participants with football and cheerleading skill development but also to develop the skills needed to address everyday life issues and encourage model citizenship.
