We employ the Whole Child Approach as a Mentoring Program

Athletics Landing Page / Student Athlete Program

Athletics & Beyond goals are to assist inner-city-at-risk youth to become successful Student Athletes through the vehicle of sports. A&B Student Athletes compete in the best local and national tournaments/leagues which gains them exposure from all different levels of collegiate athletic programs. Traveling club sports programming; baseball, boxing, cheer, football and wrestling.  oo Student Athletes understand the principles of being a dedicated student, productive citizen in the community and a hard working athlete.

  

"2 months ago, my son was struggling. He wasn’t happy in his surroundings and was looking for something more in his life. After having a few conversations with some trusted men in his life, we began to find resources and creating a plan to get him back to where he wanted to be. One of the resources suggested was Athletics and Beyond. Since joining this program less than 2 months ago, he has become a member of an extraordinary group of young men. He’s begun SAT prep classes, been given opportunities to volunteer in the community and give back, has apprenticeship opportunities, got to see Black Panther, has been able to tour a D1 college and will be traveling out of state to play ball and tour more colleges. His confidence is back, his grades have improved and he’s back to being the leader he has always been. He looks forward to being with his teammates, coaches and mentors every weekend! Thank you all for everything you do for our kids. We’re excited to be involved in this program!"- Aubrey Martin (parent)

"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.

2016 Colorado Black Chamber of Commerce best non profit finalist and Office of Children's Affairs for the City and County of Denver selected Athletics & Beyond as one of the inaugural Denver MBK award recipients.
