"Digging Education" is the primary activity of D4K and is an innovative project that combines after-school academic tutoring and mentoring with exercise and volleyball lessons. Students receive assistance with their homework, life-lessons, counseling and then participate in volleyball instruction and training. The program responds to a need for positive after-school activity and takes place from 3pm to 6pm, when many kids are unsupervised and prone to involvement in dangerous or illegal activity.
Goals and Objectives
The long-term goals of the Dig 4 Kids Foundation are: 1) To increase the number of students from low-income communities who pursue a higher education. 2) To increase the number of collegiate, professional, or Olympic student athletes that comes from lower-income communities. Dig 4 Kids will be able to achieve these goals by focusing on the following proximal objectives in resource-challenged schools: 1) Provide youth with increased opportunities to participate in-group athletics. 2) Encourage the pursuit of higher education and academic achievement among students in grades 5-12. 3) Provide student-athlete role models for kids in grades 4-6 and role modeling opportunities for kids in grades 9-12.
