Youth Empowerment & Financial Literacy & Sport Parenting

The program’s Youth Empowerment lessons explain concepts such as goal setting, cultivating self awareness, dealing with failure and developing resilience, the compound effect of small daily steps, the importance of one’s attitude, being proactive and seizing opportunities, habits and discipline, choices and responsibility. In addition it helps young athletes build communication skills, deal with peer pressure and negative influences, as well as prepare them for post-university life whether that is in professional sports or in any other field.

The Financial Literacy sessions deal with money concepts, needs and wants, savings and how money grows, spending habits and financial psychology, budgeting, banking, credit and debt, the basics of personal financial planning, philanthropy, helping others and volunteer work, and a whole lot more. Furthermore, the financial literacy curriculum of the program includes presentations about the sudden wealth phenomenon, financial setbacks, investments, risk management, building the sports personal brand, post career development, entrepreneurship and business fundamentals.

The Parents’ modules guide parents in encouraging and supporting their children with both academics and sports, they discuss how parents can prepare for the financial challenges of sending their children to college, and they include personal financial planning concepts for families with young and teenage children. In addition, they include presentations designed to help parents guide their children through college/university recruitment and thus enable them to make the right decisions for their future.

The role of Sports Academies should be expanded to a holistic model of athlete development and provide training for their students in essential life skills.
