Online Athlete Bridge to Career Development (A.B.C.D.) Program

The goal of higher education is to ensure that students receive an education that allows them to obtain a career beyond college. Student-athletes may permit their identities as athletes to overshadow the need to explore viable career options beyond sport given athletic time commitments and focus on performance. This 100 % online program was designed to assist athletes in (1) identifying potential career paths, (2) teaching the importance of developing an identity outside their sport, (3) learning how to positively promote themselves through social media and personal branding, and (4) providing the tools for applying and interviewing for employment.
