Game Plan is excited to announce a new and innovative partnership with the Beyond Sports Foundation.
About Beyond Sports Foundation
Beyond Sports Foundation uses the power of sport to transform lives by turning athletic opportunity into life opportunity. As a pioneer among college access and success programs, Beyond Sports Foundation is one of a kind in offering support for student-athletes to strengthen their academic, life, and career skills while paralleling their athletic training in order to prepare them for college and beyond through our four pillars of engagement. These include academic development, athletic development, social responsibility, and professional development & mentorship. Beyond Sports Foundation believes that by investing in student-athletes within our communities we are creating the leaders of the future.
“Our student-athletes are incredibly talented in each of their respective sports,” says Alec Brown, executive director of Beyond Sports. “It’s our job to help them learn more about their identity outside of athletics, and equip them with the tools and experiences they need for lifelong success. Game Plan is playing a vital role in achieving that.”
Beyond Sports will use Game Plan’s innovative and engaging eLearning education modules to educate their athletes on pressing topics such as college preparation, healthy relationships, life skills, diversity & inclusion, mental health, and much more. Additionally, Beyond Sports will provide its athletes with mentorship and early career opportunities through Game Plan. With Game Plan’s mobile app, all these services are available to student-athletes directly on their phone, computer, or tablet.
“Beyond Sports Foundation prepares student-athletes to succeed in life. There could not be a more perfect alignment of missions than Beyond Sports and Game Plan. By engaging the student-athlete in high school and seeing the individual through college and beyond, Beyond Sports is the perfect partner to help Chicago student-athletes in their dreams to pursue college athletics!”
Game Plan could not be more excited to welcome the Beyond Sports Foundation to our team!
