Coach for College is a service learning program that brings together US student-athletes and Vietnamese university students to teach academics, sports, and life skills to children in rural Vietnam. The Varsity Club supports Coach for College because we believe in the impact the program has on the lives of both Vietnamese youth and our student-athletes who benefit from a truly transformational experience. We also believe that Harvard student-athletes are uniquely positioned to impact the lives of young students through sports and education, and that when you have the opportunity to put a Harvard ‘H’ on your chest, you have an obligation to give back.
Each summer, through the generosity of Paul ‘52 and Harriet Weissman, the Weissman Foundation funds a number of Harvard student-athletes to participate in the Coach for College program.
