The goal of Athletics and Beyond is to keep at risk youth involved with activities to help better themselves by promoting health, gamesmanship, education and work ethic.
Our program has developed alliances with programs like East High School football to help develop our young men and women to be not only technically sound football players but productive citizens and successful students. Resumes 4 Sports is another one of our partners, their program is geared towards marketing young athletes, at every stage of their development and achievements, to various colleges and universities. The aim of Athletics and Beyond is to work with programs that promote education and the total athlete while providing services and resources in support of success in life, athletics and beyond.
Athletics and Beyond promotes the premise of “giving back”, we encourage our young men and women to excel and continue to work with other student athletes. A great example of this is an Athletic and Beyond alumni, Drew Davis. It is our privilege to watch this young man mature into a responsible citizen who cares about the community he comes from and continue his prestigious academic career and outstanding athletics. It is the combined efforts of people who care about people that make a difference in the lives of our children.
Exposure and opportunity are vital to the success of all children. So to all A & B patrons, supporters and contributors, (current, past and future) whether it be time, finances, resources or mentorship we appreciate your dedication to the program and for helping us to meet the needs of those that need our help. We thank you and appreciate your continued support.
Thank you for your participation
