Mission: The Good Athlete Project specializes in team-based Leadership Training. At the campus level, we bring together like-minded individuals to form communities of emerging leaders. By exposing students to non-profit organizations using athletics for service and character development, and by supporting them in site-specific fundraising efforts, participants will develop character, empathy, and critically conscious leadership skills. Students will also gain understanding of the non-profit sector, social entrepreneurship, and the potential of athletics as a platform for social change.
What We Do: We show up. We host presentations and conduct workshops with student-leaders who understand the powerful effect athletics has had on their lives. These workshops provide refreshing perspectives on character, leadership, and service. Top chapters will meet with renown experts in the field, including business leaders, professional athletes, and renown researchers in character development.
Why We’re Unique: Participation doesn’t have to end when you graduate. The Good Athlete Project also cultivates a network of chapters; that is, the Princeton Chapter might pair with the Northwestern Chapter on an outreach project, and all chapters are encouraged to communicate through our Facebook page and on social media: Twitter and Instagram @coach4kindness
