ISSJ services provide our members with many opportunities to be active in making a change in their communities “Through the Power of Sport.” The ISSJ is collectively the nation’s largest and most highly recognized outreach and community service program using student-athletes to reach children.
Hope for Stanley
The Hope for Stanley (HFS) Alliance mission is to provide people in sports with volunteer opportunities in areas affected by natural disasters. While Hope for Stanley was created to help rebuild the city of New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina, it has widened in scope. Volunteers have traveled to Tuscaloosa, Alabama and Long Island, New York.
PlayMaker of the Month
The Institute For Sport & Social Justice (ISSJ) PlayMaker of the Month award program recognizes the academic achievement and community service of student-athletes that exemplify the Institute SSJ motto, “Changing Lives Through the Power of Sport.”
Partners of the ISSJ have joined in our efforts to “use the power and appeal of sports to affect positive social change in society.” With the support and cooperation of our partners, we can proudly say that together we are “Changing Lives Through the Power of Sport.”
