Live Like Sam's Programs
Our Two-Pronged Model
First, in partnership with Well-Being Elevated through our THRIVE program, we encourage youth to learn to Live Like Sam by offering an evidence-based curriculum paired with peer-to-peer mentorship to teach resiliency, self-identity, gratitude, self-compassion, and other social-emotional skills.
Second, our scholarship program rewards and recognizes youth who live like Sam through three distinct scholarship and award programs. The three categories exemplify Sam's joy for life. The Pursue Your Passion scholarship provides funding for youth to focus on any passion like sports, arts, and academics. The Give Like Sam Grant is designed to encourage youth to lead community-minded service projects. Finally, the peer or adult nominated, Live Like Sam Character Awards, encourage others to identify youth who live like Sam.
