The Choctaw Nation Youth Outreach Program is getting prepared for the 2nd Annual Project Sole-Mates: we began this project one year ago and it was a great success. This project provided shoes for our Youth Outreach kids so that they could start the school year in a stylish fashion.

It’s hard to believe that it is already getting close to that time of year again when parents began to start shopping for school clothes and supplies. As many of you know the economy is still struggling and it makes it that much harder for our parents to start getting children ready for school. Once again we have decided to do this project and help our Youth Outreach kids get ready for another great school year.
>Through the generosity of donations from individuals, Sole-Mates provides new shoes for children in our program who would otherwise not be able to purchase a new pair of school shoes. It not only puts a smile on their faces but also helps build their confidence. Last year, we made several children excited about starting school when they saw that they had a new pair of shoes to start the school year.

Project Sole-Mates is not a federal or tribal funded program; it is solely funded by individual donations. Many of the donations are made by getting a shoe size from the Youth Outreach Program for a specific boy or girl, and then return the purchased shoes to the Youth Outreach office. There have also been monetary gifts that Youth Outreach staff can use to purchase shoes for the children in the Youth Outreach Program.
