FULL STRENGTH: UNITING COMMUNITIES THROUGH HOCKEY

RISE partnered with the NHL, Tampa Bay Lightning, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office and Jeff and Penny Vinik Family Boys & Girls Club in Tampa, Florida, on “Full Strength: Uniting Communities through Hockey.”

The eight-week (January through February 2018) educational program was designed to build leadership skills and create a positive interaction between local youth and law enforcement.

The program engaged 28 student-athletes, Boys & Girls Club staff and deputies from the sheriff’s office in weekly 2.5-hour sessions featuring a combination of hockey programming and hands-on learning developed by RISE focused on leadership, conflict resolution, identity and diversity.
