The Power of

Sport Education

We Are 5A!

5A is a trauma informed social impact organization designing high impact, evidence based student development systems that deliver relief, restoration and advancement to under resourced students, schools and communities. At our core, 5A leverages sport and play to inspire student leadership, holistic wellness, and social impact for athletes and non athletes alike.

Our model amplifies what students enjoy most and aligns those passions with systems and processes that inspire lifelong learning, accelerate active and engaged leadership and identifies achievable student success pathways that help them thrive on the field, off the filed, and in the field of sport. We believe that a properly facilitated sport education and leadership model has the power to inspire healthy holistic lifestyle practices, forge college and career pathways, and should teach student athletes to leverage their love of sport and play as a vehicle for improving their overall quality of life and wellbeing. Student athletes emerge from our programs with increased self confidence, greater perceived ability, increased intrinsic motivation, and greater self esteem as they learn to translate what makes them successful on the field of play directly to the classroom and all of life.

5A Elite Youth Empowerment has been supporting students and student athletes with high quality youth empowerment programming since 2009. In addition to our academic, athletic, and awareness programming, we also facilitate youth led social change initiatives that work to reverse the impact of trauma, promote holistic wellness, and effectively address issues of violence and other various social determinants of health (SDoH) impacting students the most.  


At 5A, we don't just produce winners on the field of play; we produce champions in the game of life and we are on a mission to establish ourselves as the nation's leaders in designing and facilitating high impact student athlete development experiences.


Welcome to 5A!
