This lack of positive interaction produces feelings of depression, anxiety, and hopelessness. Kids shouldn’t be struggling with these emotions, they shouldn’t have to struggle to make sense of this confusing world alone. PureGame exists to create and deliver programs that improve self-esteem, bolster mental health, increase resiliency, and help combat negative feelings.
How You Can Become a Champion of Change
The practice of uniting sport and physical education with positive youth advancement to cultivate future leaders is an emerging field called Sports-Based Youth Development. Through our School Collaboration program we provide a positive youth development program that uses sport to create positive youth engagement. We can help schools improve student outcomes and decrease negative behavior.
Think back to your childhood school sporting experiences. Was it fun? Did you learn anything? Sadly, many schools have limited ability to offer sports as often as they once did. Our School Collaboration program provides schools with physical education and sporting activities during recess, and after-school hours. The school partners cover the cost of the program, so there is no fee for the students.
Program investment comes from the school's Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) budget. LCAP is a three-year plan that describes the goals, actions, services, and expenditures to support positive student outcomes that address state and local priorities. Unfortunately, there is still a shortfall for many schools to cover the inexpensive PureGame cost of $7,000 per year. This is where you can help. By subsidizing the annual partnership fee, you will help schools experience the positive benefits of the PureGame programming.
