Home Team Advantage

November 7, 2017

Cheering on the home team on a warm summer night at the local ballpark is a cherished childhood memory for so many adults. For many of our All-Stars, however, attending sporting events is cost-prohibitive for their families. We strive to not only help students succeed in school and life, but expose them to inspirational enrichment opportunities. This fall, our All-Stars in Atlanta enjoyed attending a series of home games, thanks to our on-going partnership with FOX Sports South.

Across the country, students have toured FOX Sports studios, toured sports stadiums, ridden on the Fan Express Bus, and gone behind-the-scenes with production trucks teams – all to expose them to the diversity of sports broadcasting careers. Because of these experiences, and the partners that facilitate them, 92% of our students better understand jobs or careers they might like to have when they are older.
