Our goals are to assist inner-city-at-risk youth to become successful Student Athletes through the vehicle of sports. Team Colorado 7v7 coaches have over a century’s worth of coaching knowledge and experience. Our Student Athletes compete in the best local and national tournaments/leagues which gains them exposure from all different levels of collegiate athletic programs. Student Athletes understand the principles of being a dedicated student, productive citizen in the community and a hard working athlete.
"My Brothers Keeper Initiative"
The National Mentoring Partnership is proud to collaborate on President Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative, a public, private and philanthropic effort to support boys and young men of color in reaching their full potential. The My Brother’s Keeper Task Force identified mentoring as a critical component of the initiative. As the unifying champion for expanding quality youth mentoring, MENTOR has served as an advisor to inform the task force recommendation to launch a public-private campaign to actively recruit high-quality, sustained mentors for all youth and increase support for the capacity of mentoring programs to deliver impactful outcomes. MENTOR’s volunteer search engine is powering this effort and thousands of individuals have already used this tool on the White House website to look for mentoring opportunities in their communities.
