Sport Management Students Offer Recreational Programs At Niagara Charter School

In Announcements, by , on February 9th, 2015

Niagara University students enrolled in a class on sport-based youth mentoring continue to offer ongoing outreach programs to inner-city children.

As part of the course, NU students volunteer weekly at Niagara Charter School (Niagara Falls, N.Y.), serving as sport and recreation leaders and mentors to the children in kindergarten through grade 6.

The program, overseen by Dr. Rachel Madsen, an assistant professor at NU, is jointly funded by Niagara University’s College of Hospitality and Tourism Management, the Niagara Charter School and a poverty grant issued through the university.
