ABOUT THE U
For the past 10 years, The LEMO Foundation has been committed to understanding the landscapes our communities. It all came down to one question, "How do we come TOGETHER to compete with the very best?"
LEMO U is a collaborative performance community for conceptualizing and bringing to life social good ideas through sports, entrepreneurship & philosophy. Highly visual in nature, the inspiring environment invites student athletes from ALL socioeconomic communities to train like pros & solve big problems by building a collective intelligence based on exchanging skills and expertise; from on the field instincts to off the field development, from business acumen to hand-drawn sketches, to inspirational images to lines of code.
LEMO U headquarters is where Dreams and Passions truly come alive! LEMO U will grow daily through each program partnered strategically with specific businesses under the same roof. The idea of the student athletes working hard down below, the professionals working hard up above. Business professionals looking down on the student athletes and finding inspiration and motivation. The student athletes looking up to the professionals and being inspired and motivated to learn, discover and chart their futures.
A space where motivation and energy floats upward and flows downward. Professionals will provide education (professional skills- technical and soft) and professional opportunities for the kids as if it is finishing school for what they learn in the gym and on the field. The sports and sports-related training teaches hard work, dedication, focus, goal-orientation, competition, confidence and strategic thinking. These are all also necessary core competencies in the corporate/professional world/life. These skills transfer well when the youth move upward within the space- from field/track/gym to the office. While the student athletes drive the process, LEMO provides guidance, resources and the encouragement to tackle the impossible....
