Vision

Classroom Champions envisions a community that brings together children and the world’s best to learn the skills they need to succeed in and out of the classroom.

Mission

Our mission is to connect underserved students with world-class mentors, support teachers, and engage families so our children can achieve a successful future.

Our evidence-based approach conducts research before and after programming on key areas for students’ future success, including hope and goals for the future, engagement, healthy behaviors, growth mindset, grit and perseverance, digital skills, and academic outcomes.

In teachers, we measure classroom practices and outcomes, job performance and engagement, growth mindset, and healthy behaviors. In mentors, we measure communication, leadership, and career skills. Our research shows improvements in social and emotional development, classroom attendance, school suspensions, and math and reading scores.

Making Students Better and Better

Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) is foundational for success in school and in life.  Establishing these skills at a young age is proven to be one of the best ways to set kids up for future personal, academic, and professional success.  Our students learn these skills from some of the best athletes in the world. Our program helps kids to set and achieve positive goals, persevere, feel and show empathy for others, work well within a team, make responsible and healthy decisions, and reduce negative or risky behaviours.

Here's how we do it.

Classroom Champions provides thoughtful teams and resources to teachers to support student mental health, wellness, and academic achievement.

Thoughtful Technology

Classroom Champions equips classrooms with the technology needed to facilitate regular video lessons, live interactive video chats, and teacher moderated social media exchanges that encourage digital literacy.

Ongoing Teacher Support

Through webinars, online resources, digital lessons, a vibrant online community, and dedicated Education Coordinators, Classroom Champions teachers are fully supported to implement the program in their classrooms.

Stakeholder Measurement and Research

Our extensive pre, post, and comparison program evaluation measures, assesses, and reports on student impact and achievement through student, teacher, and family feedback, and improving athletes as mentors.
