ABOUT OUR NON PROFIT
SOF PREP: One of the more visible missions of Proteus Academy is to prepare individuals for the physical and mental rigors of BUD/s (Basic Underwater Demolition / SEAL) training. SEALs are recognized as the world’s most elite Special Forces organization. The Proteus staff includes volunteer active duty and former SEALs, who groom these young men through methods of intensive physical training, extensive mental preparation, and one-on-one mentorship. The goal at Proteus is not to create Navy SEALs, but to create men who have the character and mental fortitude to cope with and overcome all the challenges that life will throw at them. Statistically speaking the majority of these young men will experience a major challenge in life during BUD/s, which has a graduation rate of less than 15%. Although Proteus prides itself with a significantly higher success rate, the students who don’t make it, will have the tools, support, and character to get back up and understand that ringing the bell will not define them. The SOFPREP program is accomplished through 100% volunteers.
COMMUNITY: Proteus offers, free to the community, Counter Kidnapping & Situational Awareness courses for Women & Children. Proteus has become the strength and conditioning partner of Coronado Middle School and Coronado High School Rugby Teams, both boys and girls. The Coronado Rugby teams were started six years ago by a recently retired Navy SEAL. The strength and conditioning contribution by Proteus was crucial to launching these four Rugby Teams. Proteus has become home to Team Red, White & Blue, a National Veteran based non-profit, whose mission is to enrich the lives of America’s Veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activities. Proteus is also home to Young Life, the Coronado Police and Fire Departments as well as city council members including the Mayor of Coronado.
