What Others are Saying
“The IDEALS program was an important formative experience for me as an adolescent. Through the IDEALS program I learned what it means to be an effective leader – in a moral, as well as, functional sense. This central lesson didn’t simply stay with me, but rather was one that I internalized in such a way that it became part of the fabric of my life. I also found that my relationship with Jack didn’t end when the program officially ended. He continues to track my progress after IDEALS and he became an important mentor for me.” – Former Student
In 1993, the IDEALS Foundation, a 501-c-3 educational foundation, was created to offer a proprietary signature curriculum based on life fundamentals and leadership skills enabling young people to be more effective leaders and positive role models.
Our programs are designed to focus on high school student athletes who have shown the desire to better equip themselves to be positive leaders and who want to make a difference in their schools, their teams and in the lives of those they influence.
There is a generation of responsible young leaders who want to accept the challenge associated with being a positive role model. They are willing to step forward, embrace the opportunity and assume the leadership role.
