The Grassroots Project

Ambassador: Tyler Spencer , United States

Tyler founded The Grassroot Project in Washington DC to combat the high incidence of AIDS in the area. The project uses Division 1 College athletes as facilitators to teach athletic and sporting activities for Middle School students to reduce the HIV rate amongst the youth of DC. It also gives the athletes leadership development and an awareness of social issues. This year they have directly impacted 3,464 students and have 763 athletes. Each year the children receive around 10,000 hours of sexual education and sports-based learning.
