The LEP Beyond Sports Foundation’s mission is to inspire student athletes to "make a difference" by serving their local communities. By simply getting involved student athletes are discovering strengths, creating new skills, networking and inspiring others. Our student athletes find a real sense of pride, spirit and gratification after participating in community service activities while also inspiring others to put their electronics down and get involved! They open their minds and hearts to a purpose that is bigger than themselves. Our goal is to get youth, high school and college student athletes out into local communities and become involved.
The LEP Beyond Sports Foundation will offer a wide range of community service programs for student athletes (as well as parents and coaches). The world of athletics can help build confidence but it does not always build humility. We are finding that by getting our athletes involved and working with the elderly, disabled, veterans, homeless they are gaining a sense of just how fortunate they are and they yearn to do more. We find that their focus shifts from themselves to others and that shift helps make our world a better place!
