The Challenged Athletes Foundation's® (CAF) newest program — Project N.Ex.T. (New Expectations Today) — connects physically disabled mentees in San Diego County with similarly disabled mentors who provide one-on-one support as role models and partners as the mentee begins to engage (or re-engage) in physical activities and participate in sports. The goal of the program is to educate the mentee about available opportunities and create a supportive and productive environment to help foster their recovery — leading to better and more successful outcomes.
Once the mentee is ready for activity, the program provides them with the support and equipment they need to engage in an active lifestyle. Specifically, Project N.Ex.T. mentees receive:
Mentees (ages 8 and up) drawn from the full spectrum of physical disabilities are welcome. There is a minimum one year commitment required (at will participation). There is no cost to participate. Read more about becoming a mentor, or complete the mentor application. If you live in San Diego Country and want to participate as a Project N.Ex.T mentee, complete an adult application or youth application.
