Transforming athletes into heroes for justice
We believe that athletes are not “just” athletes. They are knowledgeable, aware, and capable of reimagining an equitable world if given access to resources and opportunity to influence and redesign the systems that are hindering their progress. Just Heroes is a journey through a process of transformation where athletes emerge as Heroes for Justice.
Just Heroes is a 10-week after-school program partnering with high poverty schools to offer a transformational learning structure and process to student athletes. Our skilled life coaches guide athletes through social-emotional and project based learning methods which deepen self-awareness and connection to others while preparing them to make social impact. Athletes emerge as heroes innovating solutions to the symptoms and systems of poverty.
