About the Program
Athletes As Leaders™ (originally Student Leaders & Athletic Youth) is a program designed for high school athletes on girls’ sports teams. Student athletes are encouraged to be leaders in changing social norms at school (and beyond) to a culture of safety and respect. Learn more on our Background Information page. To use the AAL materials at no cost, you must first read and agree to the terms and conditions outlined in the UW license.
