Athletes Without Borders is a non-profit organization dedicated to the development of initiatives that cultivate youth empowerment.
All of our programs are developed with the purpose to create experiences that both engage and empower. We aim to engage our youth by introducing them to sports and activities that aren't readily accessible to them in their everyday lives. We also work to infuse our programs with the core principles of mentorship, education, civic responsibility and health & wellness to provide our youth participants with the tools to empower and push themselves to new limits.
Our HBCU College Tour is one of the best ways for college-bound high school students and community college students to witness the Historically Black College experience first hand. We immerse students in the HBCU experience by highlighting the academic and athletic demands of HBCU’s and we showcase the various career paths available upon graduation for students by visiting multiple campuses all in a single trip.
Athletes Without Borders (AWB) is an official partner of the Tropic Bowl™. The Tropic Bowl, in conjunction with the American Football Federation of Costa Rica (FEFACR), is an annual football game that takes place in San Jose, Costa Rica between the United States North Eastern Semi-Pro All Star Team and the Costa Rica National Team.
During this weekend AWB hosts a number of youth events including [American] football clinics and health and wellness seminars. The youth events are culminated with the Junior Tropic Bowl, an 18 and under exhibition game played prior to the Tropic Bowl.
The Youth Golf Initiative exists as a way to bring an affordable junior golf program to communities that do not have them, especially in economically disadvantaged areas. Through this initiative we are blending the rules of the game with life and leadership skills, so our kids don’t just learn how to putt – they are learning values that will stick with them for the rest of their lives.
The Young Fencers Program (YFP) is meant to challenge each of its participants with beginner, intermediate and advanced fencing instruction. Each session begins with a rigorous group warm up before students break out into groups based on age, skill level and their preferred weapon—epee, foil or sabre. Beginners are taught fundamental fencing technique, footwork and swordplay, while experienced students hone skills in line with approaching the sport at a competitive level.
AWB has partnered with various snow resorts around the country to provide experienced Skiing/Snowboarding instructors who will be teaching kids new skills while advancing their skiing ability, preparing them to safely navigate the slopes. Our programs will be open to participants age 5 and up and each participant will have the opportunity to acquire the necessary skills to become great!
Through our variety of program offerings, children and young adults will be able to learn the latest techniques while developing their all mountain skills as well as forging lasting friendships.
