Every summer, the USOC hosts a program called Finding Leaders Among Minorities Everywhere (FLAME). The program provides minority high school and college students with an intensive look into the complex world of the Olympics and sports business. Students are provided with exciting and rigorous curriculum aimed at developing both professional skills as well as Olympic sport knowledge. Students who are accepted into this highly competitive program will attend workshops and classes at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo., where they will have the opportunity to eat at the athlete dining hall and experience life in the fast-paced world of elite sports.

We are reaching out to college access and success program personnel to spread the word about FLAME. Please find attached a brief overview of the college program that you can send to interested students. Scholarships are still available!  Don’t let your students and athletes miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
