Poynter and the Tampa Bay Rays Build The Write Field

Are you a candidate for The Write Field?

When national reports indicated that in 2008 Pinellas County had one of the highest drop-out rates for African-American males in the country, Poynter acted. Working with founding partner the Tampa Bay Rays Foundation, Poynter joined with local schools, law enforcement, businesses and community groups to create The Write Field.

The Write Field is a dynamic program designed to improve the academic performance and life skills of selected middle school boys. We are pleased to be in the third year of the program, which meets one Saturday each month during the school year.

You, too, can become part of The Write Field. For information about how to become a mentor, a participant or to donate, please contact program director Kenny Irby at 727-821-9494 or kirby@poynter.org.
