Student / Athlete Leaders


Advisor: Mr. Armstrong

Athletes Helping Athletes (AHA) is a nationally recognized organization dedicated to training high school student athletes to become leaders and address social issues such as violence and substance abuse with elementary students. The Mount Sinai program also addresses the areas of sportsmanship/civility, and bullying and teasing with 4th grade students.

Through its Student-Athlete Leadership Team program, which trains high school student athletes to be mentors to elementary school children, more than 7,500 high school student athletes have been trained, 130,000 elementary students have benefited, and 100 school districts and communities have seen impressive results from the program.

Students are selected for the program through an extensive process. First, one athlete from each team is nominated for the program. From there, students must fill out an application, obtain letters of recommendation and are then interviewed by a panel. From there, selections are made for the program.

For more information, you can contact Mr. Armstrong at the high school.
