Gardere Youth Alliance of Baton Rouge, Louisiana is committed to supporting inner city children in their athletic and academic endeavors.
At The C.A.R.E. Foundation., the Social Emotional Learning Athletics™ (SEL Athletics™ or Social Emotional Learning) program uses sports and sports character programs as the vehicle to assist youth in learning life skills such as identifying their feelings, being responsible, managing their emotions, showing empathy, respecting others, setting goals, as well as an appreciation for cultural diversity. If kids are confident decision makers, caring problem solvers, and competent relationship builders, they will be more successful academically, lead more successful overall lives, and be able to become positive contributors in their communities.
Never forget that having good sportsmanship and character is playing like the rules were meant for you, and you alone. It’s knowing we are only as a good as we were yesterday, and whether we win or lose: we always give 100 percent.
Congratulations to everyone and we look and we’re excited and ready to go with our “Sports Character Workshops”! #IAMMOTIVATION
