The Sign of the Times


Yes. This is an actual sign posted in a business. The reactions to it range from enthusiasm to utter rage.  Whatever a person may feel about a this direct message– there is something undeniable that pricks the heart…

Society does hold it’s parents accountable for our kids behavior. Period.

We are a part of being proactive and offering solutions to concerns about good Sports Character. We help youth embrace the “We Can Do It” attitude that impacts the communities they live in.

The C.A.R.E. Foundation greatly appreciate your support to programs like ours that remain dedicated to working with youth and parents.

“Empower the Person. Impact the World.”

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.

What is SEL Athletics All About?


The C.A.R.E. Foundation stands for the many programs they sponsor in Career, Academics, Recreation, and Exposure. Under ‘Recreation’, The C.A.R.E. Foundation founded SEL Athletics. SEL stands for Social Emotional Learning Athletics.

SEL Athletics uses sports based character workshops as a vehicle to assist youth in learning life skills such as identifying their feelings, being responsible, managing emotions, showing empathy, respecting others setting goals as well as an appreciation for cultural diversity.
If youth are confident decision makers, caring problem solvers, and competent relationship builders, they will be more successful in sports, school and life.
