Youth Education through Sport
Youth Education through Sport helps to develop athletes as community leaders through public speaking. We send out Canada's best athletes to speak to Grade 4-6 students in schools throughout the province about their involvement in sport, and the positive impact it has had on their lives. The informal and interactive presentations highlight the values of sport, thereby fostering the qualities of fair play, dedication, commitment, health and self-esteem. The Y.E.S. Program provides athlete speakers as role models of these qualities. Students are truly inspired by these exceptional athletes.
