Live Like Sam’s Youth Programs
To help young athletes excel in both life and in sport, Live Like Sam’s programs provide resources that enable them to grow through positive engagement with their communities. Fueled by the Sam Jackenthal Fund, our programs offer the financial, educational and community-minded tools young athletes need to succeed.
Live Like Sam’s youth programs are based on our core CARE principles of Community, Athletics, Responsibility and Education.
The most important element of youth sport is community. Live Like Sam looks to partner with local organizations to provide volunteer and service opportunities for young athletes, encouraging them to help others and give back to their communities.
Our merit and need-based scholarships are designed to help young athletes pursue their athletic dreams while living their lives based on Live Like Sam’s CARE values. The Sam Fund scholarships are granted via our partner organizations.
Heightened social intelligence can have a profound influence on young athletes and their development. Live Like Sam’s programs create social awareness and teach the positive impacts of kindness, gratitude, sportsmanship and leadership.
Training and education are vital to a young athlete’s success in sport and in life. Live Like Sam seeks to build a platform with educational tools and curriculum that teaches the skills young athletes need to become positive members of their community.
