The American Dream in Crisis
We Americans have always believed that those who have talent and try hard will succeed, but this central tenet of the American Dream seems no longer true or at the least, much less true than it was.

What We Know
What we know: Early sports and arts participation matters because the advantages that come with it can serve as an inoculation against some of life’s unhappier outcomes.
We stand for breaking the exiting models that create uneven distribution of resources and ultimately outcomes for future youth leaders through sports and the arts.

Generating New Ideas. Solving Big Problems
The Problem: Highly monetized youth sports and the arts systems are inaccessible to all communities.
Implications: It is undermining a quieter virtue of team sports and the arts; They can be places of organic integration, where economic and racial differences are supplanted by ordinary friendships and the collective desire to win.
Sports and the Arts provide both a forum for ongoing parent-child interaction and as infrastructure to actively participate in a child’s development.
Why we are different
We stand for breaking the existing models that create uneven distribution of resources and ultimately outcomes for future youth leaders through sports and the arts.
