This mentoring program is designed to serve as a system of support to high school students in grades 9-12.  It exists to build self-esteem, promote and improve academic success, and encourage social awareness.  Through participation in this program, many of the young men and women involved are given a proactive opportunity as opposed to a remedial strategy to enhance their self-esteem.  By intervening at the high school level, our students will continue to establish a positive image for themselves, which will lead to greater confidence in the choices they make.  This will result in a positive influence on our campus as our students achieve academic success while training to become our leaders of tomorrow.

Additional Description:
Ultimate Frisbee combines the non-stop movement and athletic endurance of soccer with the aerial passing skills of football. A game of Ultimate is played by two seven-player squads with a high-tech plastic disc on a field similar to football. The object of the game is to score by catching a pass in the opponent's end zone. A player must stop running while in possession of the disc, but may pivot and pass to any of the other receivers on the field. Ultimate is a transition game in which players move quickly from offense to defense on turnovers that occur with a dropped pass, and interception, a pass out of bounds, or when a player is caught holding the disc for more than ten seconds. Ultimate is governed by the Spirit of the Game, a tradition of sportsmanship that places the responsibility for fair play on the players rather than referees.
