Our Impact

Positive, lasting impact comes from having a meaningful relationship with someone kids can look up to – someone who they believe cares about them and is committed to their well-being. A champion in their corner.

Classroom Champions kids know how much they matter – they have the best athletes in their country in their corner. When they realize how much their teachers and athlete mentors care about them, and how committed they are, a connection unlike any other takes place.

The student experience becomes one of excitement, hope, and determination as the kids see their efforts and achievements recognized and cheered on by someone they look up to outside of any immediate support system.
