There are more than 460,000 NCAA student-athletes, and less than 2% of those athletes will go on to compete professionally in their sport. An NCAA study on the experiences of college athletes revealed that 60% of student athletes reported viewing themselves "more as athletes than students. Many hours are devoted to training, practice, and conditioning during their college years, leaving them unprepared for the professional world, damaging their ability to compete in the job market post-graduation. Reality Speaks, Inc. is a non-profit organization that targets student-athletes in successfully preparing them for life after sports. We aim to discover athletes’ interest outside of their sport, and motivate these young minds to dream beyond their limits, while guiding them in the process. We, at Reality Speaks, believe “a vision cannot be taught, but it can be directed.” A dream beyond sports…this is reality.
