On February 24, 2018, The Men’s Leadership Council (“MLC”) of The Rape Foundation held its second annual Conference for Coaches focusing on the critical role coaches have in shaping the values and character of their athletes, while they also face intense pressure to win…from schools, alumni, parents, and communities. Nationally recognized speakers, WILL FERRELL, LADAINIAN TOMLINSON, MARCELLUS WILEY and A.C. GREEN, shared personal experiences about the impact their coaches have had on their lives and about helping kids find their unique vision and purpose. Featured presenters, JOE EHRMANN, former NFL player and co-founder of INSIDEOUTINITIATIVE, and JODY REDMAN, spoke about transforming the current “win-at-all costs” sports culture to a culture that defines and promotes sports as a human growth experience. 275 coaches from schools across Southern California attended. The MLC sponsors educational initiatives for men and boys that build character and foster social responsibility. Our partners in this initiative included The Los Angeles Chargers, LAFC, Los Angeles Rams, Los Angeles Lakers, The Angell Foundation, Los Angeles Clippers, LA84 and the Positive Coaching Alliance.
