AUSTIN, Texas (PRWEB) March 16, 2023
Athlete Foundry, a veteran-owned EdTech company, announces today that Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) will make Athlete Foundry’s fully cloud-based premium student athlete holistic development platform available to the warriors and families WWP serves.
Wounded Warrior Project® is transforming how America’s injured veterans are empowered, employed, and engaged in our communities. WWP offers life-changing programs in mental health, career counseling, and long-term rehabilitative care. Those programs, along with WWP’s advocacy efforts, improve the lives of millions of warriors and their families.
Athlete Foundry’s first-in-the-nation online platform gives parents of middle & high school student athletes a 6th thru 12th grade roadmap that lets them build their most comprehensive ATHUMADEMIC (athletic + human + academic) resume, enabling them to improve their odds of becoming collegiate athletes, increase their college financial assistance potential, and help prepare them to be successful in life after sports, regardless of current ability or zip code.
“Physical health plays a vital role in building resilience for injured veterans. That’s why we are pleased to offer the Athlete Foundry platform to Wounded Warrior Project families with student athletes,” said James Herrera, WWP vice president of Physical Health and Wellness. “This offering complements WWP’s direct programs and services.”
“Athlete Foundry is not a recruiter, and we don’t replace your coach. We empower parents and their student athletes to see, track, build, and communicate a much better and holistic journey to collegiate athletics. We're doing something no one else is doing, making a difference, and we love it! As a veteran-owned company, doing our part to help our Nation’s military families is deeply personal to me. Due to a multitude of service-related reasons, military kids face more challenges than their non-military counterparts, we want to help level the playing field,” said Athlete Foundry CEO, KC Chhipwadia.
