Coaches play a critical role in developing youth. Bill Daniels experienced that first-hand. Then he grew into a tremendously successful business executive, earning enough money to establish the Daniels Fund to help enable and empower others.
Even after his passing, Bill Daniels' vision for how to impact youth continues to fuel the Daniels Fund, which recently granted PCA-Colorado $350,000. The grant calls for our Chapter to:
- add 20-30 new partner schools and youth sports organizations
- deepen impact with 25 existing partners through intensive hands-on assistance with implementing PCA tools and resources to effect culture change in their youth sports environments
- launch Student-Athlete Leadership Team initiatives at five additional schools
- develop a multi-media campaign of public service announcements targeting youth sports parents to create additional awareness of PCA, adoption of PCA sports-parenting tools and demand for more schools and youth sports organizations to partner with PCA.
PCA-Colorado is grateful for the vision of Bill Daniels and the generosity of the Daniels Fund, led by CEO Linda Childears.
