We envision schools in which all students can participate in physical, social, and mental well-being through planned programming and sports participation to enhance the educational, social, emotional, and physical benefits that our youth deserve in life.
Athletes for Arizona aims to galvanize sports philanthropy statewide by connecting people and organizations that value the way sports and physical activity enrich the community. The initiative is a partnership between the Arizona Community Foundation, Athletes for Hope, and The Be Kind People Project, designed to support youth in underserved communities, with a focus on these three main pillars education, mental and physical health, and advocacy and equity.
We’re looking for qualified Title I Arizona Schools that are interested in participating in the AFA pilot program in the fall of 2023. The program includes programming from The Be Kind People Project. See if your school may qualify.
