It costs roughly $13 to enroll a deserving child in an Arena Program. And to date In the Arena has served nearly 22,000 youths in 12 states and 15 cities nationwide. Having surpassed our goal to impact the lives of 10,000 young Americans by the time the Summer Games kicked off in Beijing in 2008, ITA is aiming to triple that number by the start of Vancouver’s 2010 Olympics by impacting 30,000 under-served youths by the time those Games conclude. You can help us meet our goal by contributing to our effort whatever you feel you have in abundance: time; technical skills; in-kind, stock, estate and cash gifts; you name it.

In Reflections, renowned mythology scholar Joseph Campbell writes, “Money is congealed energy and releasing it releases life is a mode of participation in the lives of others…In the living of a life today, money is a facilitating energy source. With money in the tank, like gasoline, you can get places you otherwise couldn't go...when money is poured on something it flowers.” We believe this is true of any resources you might offer In the Arena.
