The Youth Safety and Civility Alliance was invited to participate in the Plano Sports Authority’s annual “PSA Pays it Forward” event. Throughout the day, YSCA volunteers were able to interact with soccer and basketball coaches, players, and parents, promoted our “Campaign for Civility” and “Heads Up!” clinics as well as strategies for promoting sportsmanship on and off the field. Several teams followed up with us after the event for more information or a one-on-one session with their team.
Did you know that “youth who are involved in sports report higher average levels of civic engagement…” and more likely to have volunteered and registered to vote?!
