I’m on the international board for Classroom Champions, an innovative non-profit connecting Olympians and Paralympians with underserved students across North America for a – free – year-long mentoring relationship that teaches students about goal setting, perseverance, community, and leadership. Classroom Champions uses monthly video lessons and twice-yearly live chats with the athletes. Teachers also receive free technology to help students interact with their mentor and support via training, resources, and connections with other teachers.
