Julie Foudy, former USA Women's Soccer Team Captain, two-time Olympic Gold Medalist, and two-time World Cup Champion, launched the Julie Foudy Leadership Academy (JFLA) to spread the ideals she embodies. Students learn soccer from some of the best women's players in the world, and they are exposed to a multitude of leadership concepts they can cultivate for life. The JFLA partners with us in implementation of Girl Talk: Choices and Consequences of Underage Drinking™. Recognizing that female soccer players are role models to many teen girls, our Girl Talk program was the sponsor of the 2007 Induction of the National Soccer Hall of Fame – the year when Mia Hamm and Julie Foudy were inducted.
"This is the perfect partnership because we’ve been trying to get the message across to young kids to make smart decisions. Underage drinking is a huge problem in this country and a cause for concern amongst parents and adults. I'm proud to be a part of the effort." - Julie Foudy
