There are many ways to teach young kids how to become leaders. I personally think that football has many bits and pieces to the game that can be used or applied to real life situations in a great way. In my hometown of DelrayBeach, I started a flag football club as part of an after school program in an effort to teach these 2nd through 5th graders what it takes to be a leader.
In addition to leadership, what can be gained through football are characteristics such as responsibility, dependability, integrity and teamwork just to name a few. These are all characteristics that I think are essential to achieving success. So before we put the flags on and started slinging the ball around the field I would sit the kids down and pick a topic for the day. For example, today I may choose responsibility. I would then ask one of the kids to define the word. After they defined it I would give them a example of being responsible when playing football and directly relate it to a real life situation. Then its the kids turn, at least three people have to give me an example and then we are off to the field. I felt it was effective because the kids can use something they love which is football to better understanding what they need to be better kids.
Young kids across the nation have a great chance to change this crazy world.

This clothing drive was a success! In my hometown of DelrayBeach there are many families that barely have any clothes to put on their back and that’s not to mention the homeless who have to struggle each and every day. So in the spring of 2017 I decided to partner with Cross ministries and host a clothing drive. I am so so thankful for those who donated and help put a smile on the faces of the less fortunate!
