Over the past several weeks (admittedly a very rough estimate – time is a funny thing these days), I’ve had a post-it note stuck to my make-shift home desk that reads, “Feed Resilience.” I’ve looked to it for inspiration when thinking about how to prioritize the emotions I feel and actions we want to take. Fear spreads remarkably quickly – sometimes rightfully so – but how do we spread strength? How do we inspire empathy when we’re told to stay apart?
We strongly believe organizations focused on connection and travel will be critical as we look to emerge out of this period of isolation and fear. We’ve already helped expand the perspectives of over 300 youth who understand the value of caring about others and who recognize their actions can impact the world. Our alumni have gone on to study public health and international relations, they’ve coached and mentored in their communities, they’ve raised money for our partners. We hope to continue inspiring youth players and facilitating connection.
In the midst of this pandemic, we recognize there's a desire to do something and help others right now and we hope you’ll channel some of that energy towards our organization.
