A big congratulations to our Student-Athlete mentors that were recently drafted into the NFL. It is a big dream come true for them. Much, more importantly, is that their dream come true has given all the young boys they touched inspiration through real relationships to dream big and be what you dream.

What a true treat and pleasure it has been to see them grow in their leadership roles as mentors for YIP, members of their teams, and reflections of their communities representing their respective universities, and now become drafted onto the ultimate stage of football.

We have no doubt that they will be leaders of their new teams and leaders in their new communities, leading from the heart and making our YIP family proud!
