Find The Courage Runs FTC Mentoring Program with White River Elementary School!
For the second year in a row, Find The Courage ran its program with Vermont 3rd graders, promoting kindness, inclusion, encouragement, compassion and respect to one another. Find The Courage had Dartmouth College student-athletes volunteer with FTC instructors to help reinforce the FTC message through role plays and Q&A sessions. “It was an incredible opportunity to have collegiate athletes help us reinforce a message of kindness and compassion to elementary school students. The third graders absolutely loved working with our volunteers. The kids were actually chanting ‘F.T.C.’ as we approached their classroom,” said Executive Director, Molly Creamer. “It was moving to see the Dartmouth athletes volunteer and do such a fantastic job with our youngsters. Our role models made an impact and exemplified our message at its finest. You have a platform, and when you use it positively, you can inspire those around you to do the same.”
Hanover High School March Intensive
Find The Courage ran an intensified three-day, 21 hour Bystander Positive Impact Program with a volunteer group of high school students during their March Intensive high school program. Students engaged in team-building activities and engaged in the FTC message. Students created their own presentation regarding the FTC message and attended a local 3rd grade class encouraging young students on how to be kind, inclusive, encouraging, compassionate and respectful to each other at recess.

Volunteer current and former professional basketball players teamed up with Find The Courage in Chatham, New Jersey to give a unique skills clinic focused on the intangible skills necessary for being a positive teammate. Some of these skills included positive body language on the court and bench, helping teammates up, encouraging teammates after a mistake, high-fiving, huddling and appreciating each role within a team. Find The Courage then made the parallel of the benefit of using these same skills with classmates in school. This clinic reached over sixty players, ranging from 2nd grade to 8th grade. Check out the highlight video from the Find The Courage skills & leadership clinic. Some amazing volunteers were out spreading the FTC message to our future leaders! Highlight Video
