NYR4GRugby For Good is our grassroots, base level rugby program that specifically uses rugby as a vehicle for social inclusion and youth development. The majority of our program partners work with us through the Rugby For Good model. We utilize an asset-based approach, combining rugby with sports & health education, mentoring, and tutoring. We empower young people to develop 4 C’s:
These 4 Cs form the foundation for our primary programmatic outcomes: improving wellness and maximizing individuals potential to achieve success. Our coaches and our method of teaching the game we love gets results by incorporating the values of rugby into every day life, helping with the obstacles many kids may face daily.
