Raise $$$ For Your HS Sports Teams

The Junior "Athletic Mentorship" program is developed as a fundraiser to help High School student athletes promote a sense of responsibility; help them create a sustainable program; meet financial needs for team trips; and enhance creativity amongst the players in a leadership environment. Elementary grade students must sign up for the after school sport mentoring program. By having each sport operate a Junior "Athletic Mentorship" program, elementary students not only become engaged in the sport of their interest, but it allows more elementary kids an opportunity to get involved. Proceeds from each Junior "Athletic Mentorship" sport specific program goes directly back into that particular sport. The Junior "Athletic Mentorship" program brings in roughly $1500 per sport, per 8 weeks.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

The Junior "Athletic Mentorship" Program is a licensed after school athletics program designed for High School student athletes working with elementary grade students. The directive of the program instills mentoring, leadership, confidence, and teamwork in High School student athletes while directly impacting in school-related aptitude, performance, and behavior for elementary students. High School students mentor and lead elementary students through various activities in a specific sport, helping create stronger communication skills, direction, follow through, and leadership skills.  

The lens brings together concepts and content for deeper thinking and more meaningful relationships; drawing instruction and students continually back to the significance of their actions and how they communicate. High School students gain understanding of real life application regulating attention, risk assessments, decision making, time management, and social skills; overall becoming more focused learners. Transferable skills (skills which help elementary students redesign a direction to make stronger decisions on their own) are introduced and/or refined to help master the unit’s essential understandings and generalizations.

HOW DOES THE PROGRAM FUNCTION WEEKLY?

The specified sport head coach or assistant coach is the team leader for the High School mentors and the Junior "Athletic Mentorship" program.  The coach reviews the licensed curriculum and fills in the activities on the activity worksheets in the curriculum.  The team leader them provides the activity worksheet each week to the High School mentors.  The mentors then lead the activities with the elementary students and the team leader becomes an observer to handle any emergencies. 

The Junior Athletic Mentorship Program brings fun to mentorship by challenging all involved while teaching crucial values of individual leadership. Put all of that together in a sport specific environment and each participant is guaranteed to have fun.

Teamwork begins with a breakdown of communication skills, resiliency, individual growth, and understanding how to work together to accomplish a common goal. Participants are challenged to relate to each other while helping one another through difficult times to create a team structure.

This program thrives on individual confidence building, team growth, and understanding self through the process. Our goal is to have high school students understand that their legacy is what defines them, and that they can own that through opportunities such as this program.
