Professional athletes have a unique platform in our communities. Students — especially our most vulnerable youth — often see prominent athletes as role models. Because of their renown, former professional athletes can inspire students to rise above challenges and excel in school and life.
United Way's Athlete Ambassador Program provides an opportunity for former professional athletes to continue giving back to the community. Athlete Ambassadors attend community building events, network with notable community leaders, and make a meaningful difference in the lives of others, while developing their personal brand and legacy.
