Team of Champions Foundation
The Team of Champions Foundation is proud to promote, guide and monitor the usage of the Team of Champions model for students and adults across the United States. Through the national foundation’s development of the model, on-going research of the model and on-going support of participants in the model, significant results have been achieved. The model has been shown to provide an effective framework for enabling all individuals to cope successfully within their world and the world that is at first unfamiliar to them. The model allows individuals to use their gifts to shine and the lessons learned to share with others. This framework is a result of individuals needs and addresses the most significant deficits that stand in the way of individual enlightenment and success. Therefore the framework teaches individuals to share and work as a team, to find their success starting with their own multiple intelligence foundation, and to survive in a world of obstacles and odds. By completing these goals, individuals will automatically gain championship spirit and leave an individual and team legacy, which will lead to a cycle of success, thereby igniting the championship spirit of others. The model is adjustable to all levels with appropriate depth and concentration from elementary activities to in depth focus on reaching goals as teens and adults. Staying in school, becoming literate and maintaining literacy, avoiding incarceration and suicidal tendencies, developing positive relationships, team identity and physical and mental health are just some of goals started at the elementary level with activities progressing to more focused complex activities and small groups sessions for middle, high school and adults.
