DURHAM -- The Duke Athletic Leadership Programs are off to a great start for the spring semester.  The leadership program kicked off the semester with the Sophomore Outdoor Leadership Experience at Camp Chestnut Ridge in nearby Efland, NC.  A group of about 30 sophomore student athletes attended this overnight retreat participating in high and low rope activities and leadership discussions.

The Advancing Leaders Program kicked off the spring semester with a new group of student athlete participants.  Junior student athletes from men’s and women’s cross country, field hockey, football, men’s and women’s soccer, and volleyball are currently participating in the program. The group will meet a total of 5 times this semester.

The First Year A.C.T.I.O.N. program is off to a great start this semester with all first year student athletes meeting in January to discuss the importance of service and giving back.  Staff from the Emily K Center attended the January meeting to discuss the center and volunteer opportunities. 

The next meeting will be held on Monday, February 18th with diversity and LGBT as the focus of discussion.  Special guests from the You Can Play Project will be attending the meeting.  The mission of the You Can Play Project is to ensure equality, respect, and safety for all athletes, without regard to sexual orientation.

Earlier this summer, the Duke Athletics Department created their own You Can Play video. The video featured Duke student athletes, coaches, and staff.  More information on the You Can Play Project can be found at http://youcanplayproject.org/.
