Hollman H.E.L.P.S – High School Edition is committed to improving the lives and facilities of high school student-athletes. We believe that that the facilities can impact a student’s wellbeing and a school’s recruitment for coaching talent.
Locker rooms are an area where student-athletes typically spend most of their time outside of the classroom. This space is when we see students learn the importance of teamwork, build character, and develop leadership skills; all lessons that extend beyond sports.
HOW WE SUPPORT SCHOOLS AND STUDENTS
Locker Room Renovations
To ensure a safe, healthy space for students, The Hollman Family Foundation is working to improve conditions for high school student athletes through a locker renovation. This renewed environment will revitalize students’ school and community spirit.
The opportunity for an education past high school shouldn’t be a luxury. The Hollman Family Foundation is committed to providing students with assistance in transitioning from high school to college with paid classes and books from the local community college.
For high school athletes the stress of athletic competition, achieving high academic grades added to that of daily life can create a difficult environment to navigate. The Hollman Family Foundation is working to increase student awareness on mental wellness. We want to help remove the negative stigma surrounding mental health by educating students on mental wellness and management surrounding stress anxiety and depression.
EXCELLENCE THROUGH PURPOSE
Low-income school districts cannot do it alone. The lowest investment per student by the government was made in the poorest communities, while the highest investment per student was made in high-income communities. Overall, the more affluent a community, the more funds were spent per student on school construction.
Our goal is together with our partners we will be able to renovate locker rooms that will support the athletic programs, create positive mental well-being and be a central location to help develop team and leadership skills in high school students across the nation.
