Welcome to Good Sports - USA
Good Sports - USA is a youth mentoring program and subsidiary of the 501 (c) (3) non-profit - L.E.G.A.C.C.Y. - USA whose mission is to Leverage diverse community partnerships that Empower, Grow & Advance Challenged Communities and Youth who reside in low income and rural communities.  As a youth mentoring program, Good Sports - USA provides employment awareness, education, training and workforce readiness to our most vulnerable citizens - our children, more specifically, "at risk" youth between 6 to 18 years of age.

Good Sports - USA youth mentoring services have been designed to transfer youth motivation and passion for sports & entertainment into: increased academic improvement, positive character development, education about the employment process, awareness of non-player sports & entertainment careers (the jobs that surround the central figure), education about career planning, active participation in career exploration, education in life skills development/making good choices, education in understanding the law/appreciating the role of law enforcement, active participation in service learning, and health & fitness.

Good Sports - USA youth participants are provided with tutors, as needed, and matched with an adult mentor who is tasked with providing encouragement, guidance and support in fulfilling the goals established between the mentee, the parent/guardian, the school and the Good Sports - USA Youth Mentoring Program.  In addition, each participating Good Sports - USA mentee parent/guardian is connected with a Good Sports - USA case manager who will assess the family’s need and make the appropriate referral/link to avaiable community resources.
