The Race4Good® Global Youth League is a student leadership program unlike any other, bringing together schools from around the world to take part in a series of groundbreaking races aimed at uplifting communities in need. Based on extensive feedback from teachers and students from around the world, Race4Good presents a new 2-year, high-impact, meaningful, service learning, and leadership program that has been carefully designed to provide an opportunity for students to transform lives more profoundly.
The Race4Good® Global Youth League offers something for everyone—whether student, teacher, administrator, headmaster, business mentor, supporter, or community member. Race4Good offers four main programs.
Race4Good enables students and business mentors to use their passion to help change lives forever! Each school team has the opportunity to be involved in specific race Hubs that cover a wide range of interests and disciplines including finance, technology, creativity, wellness, and more. Students can sign up to be a Hub Lead or Co-Lead, a Team Coordinator, or simply volunteer to support one or more Hubs.
