Students Athlete Leadership Team (SALT)

The Mets/Sharp Electronics Student Athlete Leadership Conference Series trains more than 1,200 student/athletes from 30 high schools on Long Island to deliver drug and alcohol abuse prevention programming to over 20,000 grade school children.

Conducted at Molloy College in Rockville Centre, LI, by Athletes Helping Athletes, a nationally recognized organization dedicated to developing proactive programs to address serious social and health issues affecting youth today, the workshops prepare the Student Athlete Leaders for their ongoing visits with fifth graders in their school districts. This Student Athlete Leadership Team promotes positive activities such as sports while also educating students about the dangers of drugs and alcohol.
