My relationship with WBO began with baseball lessons for my boys. After spending time at the facility and getting to know Jerry Jacobson, we learned that his true vision was to reach at risk youth through baseball. My family and I have had many opportunities to volunteer our time and be a part of Jerry's outreach to kids in the Tulsa area. We have found that when we volunteer to be a blessing to others, we usually end up being blessed ourselves.
I have interned here at WBO for the past 5 months and let me tell you it is a great and wonderful environment to be in. The staff is second to none, they are great with communication and always helpful. The instructors are well qualified and when a client comes in you know that they are being taught the right way. WBO is the only place that i will recommend to anyone.

WBO is an amazing organization. It is so neat to see the intentionality of Jerry Jacobson and the other people involved: everything they do has a bigger meaning. They have reached so many kids through baseball, and it is obvious their ministry is growing every day. For them, baseball is an opportunity to share something bigger with kids, namely the gospel of Jesus Christ. The coaches are truly interested in young players growth as both athletes and as men and women of character. WBO's global outreach has touched literally thousands of lives, and the numbers are growing daily.

I'd like to look into helping the organization with some behind-the-scenes work, especially marketing.
