Gary Poole grew up with a limited idea of what he could do with his life. Throughout his youth, all he ever imagined was becoming a professional athlete. The lack of exposure he experienced as a youth made it that more difficult. This made it difficult to see himself as anything bigger than his environment.
"It's hard to be what you can't see."
Not wanting another youth to experience the tough journey of deciding what they wanted to become, he set out to empower youth youth, through exposure, with the ability to make an informed decision of the path they wish to pursue in life before graduating high school.
