Young Athletes Lead by Example: Sports Character 101

the care foundation and gardere youth alliance

Gardere, Louisiana is a high-poverty, high-crime neighborhood and there are needs for youth development programs. Gardere Youth Alliance was born from the heart of coaches providing care and support (through sports) for at-risk youth that are looking for structure and direction. We at C.A.R.E. Foundation are excited that through our focused character building and workforce development training we can help youth strive to build better futures.
sportsmanshipOf course, the way a team plays as a whole determines its overall success. With that understanding it’s clear that sports will always be sports and talent will always be talent–but the right mindset of those individuals to conform as a team has the ingredient of success. The ingredient for our Sports Character Program is for success in life though sports and training.
As coaches, we determine the kind of experience our young athletes have. Now we can extend our reach both off the field and court. We are thankful to have this opportunity to make a difference in the example set by young athletes today. We look forward to implementing to the principles of SEL Athletics and making a difference in the world on child at a time.
The C.A.R.E. Foundation looks forward to working with Gardere Youth Alliance.

Why Trust Begins with C.A.R.E.

Having integrity in your character generates a feeling of trustworthiness to others. It is trust that is one of the most crucial building blocks of any relationship. Trust is a wonderful gift that people of all ages, backgrounds and nationalities rely on for personal safety. It doesn’t matter if it’s a friendship, a teacher-student relationship, or a business relationship, trust allows all parties involved to feel at ease and safe with one another.

friends-that-careHaving trust opens a person’s mind and heart to new ideas; it allows us to share our genuine selves with others, without fear of being judged or mistreated. Trust also enables us to genuinely depend on one another with confidence.

Trust is earned: it can never be demanded, but though a patient process it can be commanded.
Most of us have a certain degree of guardedness. We don’t immediately share our innermost thoughts and feelings, and we don’t allow ourselves to be vulnerable until the other person in the relationship has made us feel relatively safe.

We at The C.A.R.E. Foundation create the right environment for: trust, confidence, higher learning, sportsmanship, entrepreneurship, passion and drive in areas of: career, academics, recreation and exposure.  We understand how to break down the unseen walls and barriers that will get even the most discouraged student for educator back in a mindset for a lifestyle of couples with their dreams of personal success.  We understand because we’ve been there, too.

We are the people that C.A.R.E. #IAMMOTIVATION
