Transcript of How Classroom Champions will help your students

IS EVERY CHILD CAPABLE OF GREATNESS?
We know they are, but we also know they need someone to teach them the skills and attitudes of success.
Who better to mentor them than people who have demonstrated excellence in their own endeavors - like the world’s greatest athletes?
The ability to accomplish their own dreams gives our mentors the expertise to unpack that process for the next generation
Classroom Champions partners with teachers to connect trained mentors with classrooms of students across the continent for a school-year-long relationship conducted using technology.
no matter what big dreams the children have in mind.
With a mentor believing in them, anything seems possible, no matter the child’s background.
Classroom Champion students say they’re twice as likely to actively pursue their goals than the national average.
More than twice the national average also report that they can find their way around
any
problem.
Each video ends with a monthly challenge for the students to complete.
Teachers integrate the monthly theme with core subjects like literacy, social studies, and math, and use technology donated by Classroom Champions to stay in touch with their mentors.
They report that the themes support a healthy classroom climate and engage students in school.
Classroom Champions also helps students develop interpersonal skills.
Meanwhile, as the mentors pursue their own dreams, the students see that process unfold in real time.
In addition, each classroom has the opportunity to meet their mentor through two live chats.
a respected friend, who has a positive influence on each child participating in the program.
83% said that their mentor was their friend
With the support of Classroom Champions’ education team, mentors are a powerful voice in the classroom, inspiring students...
...and their teachers, who are supported through ongoing training, a lively online community, and a yearly conference.
Teachers report that the program has helped them develop their practice.
and strengthen school-home-community relationships.
If you would like to invite an amazing, inspiring athlete into your classroom to serve as a mentor
and would like for your students to grow in the areas of self efficacy, interpersonal skills, and digital literacy
we would love for you to join us in teaching students to dream big and accomplish those dreams!
The mentors teach goal setting and perseverance, and other character education themes, in monthly video lessons.
