Working with Good Sports USA, to reach at-risk youth where they are, has been a life-changing experience for me and I treasure every moment I have shared with the participating youth. The engaging programs and excursions always capture the participating youths' attention and imagination- I find that component the most inspiring and makes the youth as well as volunteers to keep coming back.

This is an excellent program to help youth make decisions about their future. Choosing an appropriate career will help a person reach their goals. Thank you for supporting the students at LCRJDC.

Volunteering with Good Sports USA at our local Juvenile Detention Center was a great experience. The team is knowledgeable, professional, and truly has a heart for youth. I look forward to working with them again in the future.
