Legacy Cares Inc., the 501c3 organization that owns Bell Bank Park, announced the organization is partnering with Sold Out Youth Foundation, another 501c3 organization, to create a drug and alcohol abstinence program at Bell Bank Park.
The program aims to empower youth to serve as role models for their peers and leverages role model mirroring, a comprehensive online learning platform comprised of videos that teach life skills and positive peer pressure to challenge students to reach their maximum potential. The program goes beyond just abstaining from drugs and alcohol by challenging students to pursue team values, accountability, positive life choices, goal setting, mental and emotional well-being, nutrition, fitness and other critical life skills.
“One of the goals at Legacy Cares is to impact youth, whether that be through sports or other programs like this,” said Douglas Moss, president of Legacy Cares. “Providing youth with programs to become well-rounded in every aspect of their lives is critical, so we are extremely excited to partner with Sold Out Youth Foundation to offer up this important program.”
All of the online program materials are made available by Sold Out Youth Foundation, whose mission is to educate, encourage and challenge students to live a life of alcohol and drug abstinence, while delivering a 100 percent intentional interactive online video of life skills, overall health and wellness, and fitness education platform.
“The Sold Out Youth Foundation is excited to partner with Legacy Cares and proud to offer Legacy students and parents our innovative and groundbreaking total student health and wellness program, and curriculum,” said Roman Gabriel, president and CEO of Sold Out Youth Foundation. “Now more than ever, it’s critical that we offer our students drug and alcohol education, and mental and emotional wellness training, equipping them with the tools to assist them in reaching their full potential in and out of the classroom. We are pleased to partner with Legacy Cares, who like us strives to puts youth, family, and community first. Educate, Encourage, Challenge.”
To equip youth for success, students will take a three-step pledge to abstain from drugs and alcohol, help their friends make the same positive choice and let their parent know to keep them accountable. The program equips schools, athletic programs and community youth organizations with a robust curriculum and in-person assembly with top entertainment and sports figures, then supplement it with a vast library of online video resources to continue the discussion.
The program’s primary function is to foster mental and emotional wellness, physical fitness, leadership and life skills, goal setting and healthy lifestyles amongst at-risk, underprivileged and mixed abilities youth in Arizona.
