RETHINK THE GAME.

Traditionally, youth are only exposed to sports from the perspective of athlete.

Yet “sports” is a global, multi-billion dollar industry, featuring thousands of career paths spanning a variety of fields, and incorporating many other industries.

WHAT IS PRODIGY?

PRODIGY is a youth-led platform exploring the business, culture, technology, and power of sport.

PRODIGY leverages sports to motivate youth to pursue post-secondary education and employment. PRODIGY inspires youth to define, explore, and achieve their goals beyond any perceived limitations.

While sports are our vehicle, the program offers youth an opportunity to cultivate their talents and develop transferable career and social skills that will produce lifelong benefits.
