The PCA Teen Cheerleaders and Alumni held a special dance and cheer clinic for ”The Sanctuary” on 8th street, located in the Springfield community of Jacksonville. The Sanctuary offers a stimulating environment for inner city children and youth. For the last 4 years the Professional Cheerleaders Alumni and the PCA Teen Cheerleaders have been mentoring young ladies by motivating them through dance and cheer.
The clinic started with a special introduction from PCA, followed by a dance warm up, fun chants and an energetic hip hop routine. In addition, PCA did a team building activity with the girls and held a circle discussion about PCA’s Mission: Dreams, Goals, Actions. Alumni and the PCA Teen Cheerleaders bond every year with the young ladies of The Sanctuary by sharing their positive missions in life.
The following PCA representatives attended: Professional Cheerleaders Alumni Members: Donna, Mindy and Autumn, and 2010 PCA Teen Cheerleaders: Brooklyn, Megan and Carolyn.

It was an honor to travel Professional Cheerleaders Alumni President Kristin Doakes’ home town of Lake City, FL to host a cheer & Dance clinic at Lake City Girls Club. Donna Windsor, Kristin and PCA’s Teen Cheerleading group taught cheers, dance routines and did some fun team building games and activities. The Lake City Reporter newspaper did a story on the clinic and took photos that ran on the front page of the local newspaper.
Alumni had the opportunity to mentor the girls and talk about their mission: Dreams, Goals, Actions. This is the type of community mentoring programs Professional Cheerleaders Alumni is all about!
The Donna W. and Kristin D., along with PCA’s Teen Cheerleader group spent the afternoon putting on a cheer clinic for the girls at “The Sanctuary on 8th Street” in Jacksonville. The Sanctuary’s Mission is to encourage and empower children, youth, and adults in Springfield to become strong and independent by ministering to their spiritual, physical, social, and intellectual needs. This is a perfect fit with Professional Cheerleaders Alumni’s mission to mentor the young girls, who learned a dance combination, some cheers, and talked about their goals and the importance of staying focused on school, right along with PCA’s mission: “Dreams, Goals, Actions”.
