Role Models
Since the dawn of time, human beings have learned through modeling others. Positive role models boost motivation by modeling a guide to achieving success.

They inspire. They promote positive values and lead by example. They are accepting of others. They overcome obstacles. And now, research shows they can make a difference in today’s youth.

Becoming Your Personal Best: Life Lessons from Olympians and Paralympians features some of the greatest role models in overcoming adversity. In addition to the comprehensive program materials, you can learn directly from the athletes about how to develop and strengthen resiliency and meet life’s challenges.


We invite you to visit the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum and experience our “Resiliency Warm-ups” and “Resiliency Huddles.” Facilitated by BYPB staff, “Resiliency Warm-ups” offer youth a chance to ignite their creativity with resiliency-themed crafts and mini lessons.

“Resiliency Huddles” are drive-by discussions between athletes and parents/adults/caretakers and youth focused on one of six BYPB Resiliency Skills, including Self-Identity, Mindset, Problem Solving, Perseverance, Relationships and Confidence.
