Fiscal pressures, resulting in teacher layoffs or reassignments and a lack of equipment and other resources, inhibit the offering of qualify physical education in many schools and districts.
The Life Beyond School program focuses on creating a solid personal foundation of social and emotional wisdom, acquiring tools to facilitate the navigation of work, trade school, or college. Crystallizing each student’s passions and skills into a clear understanding so that they can move onto a life well lived.
Our program remains rooted in the use of sport to deliver the content of this curriculum. By using specially formulated adaptions to sport we can teach youth skills such as SMART goal setting, the power of being present, understanding and using personal core values, overcoming
adversity, plan-B thinking, and much more.
Our graduates work and intern in a range of jobs in a broad range of fields — public relations, marketing, advertising, social media, television, radio, magazines, human resources, event planning, education, nonprofits, and technology. We’ve also had graduates start their own businesses and others go on to graduate school in communication, law, public health, strategic communications, and education.
