49ers EDU Playbook Patrol Presented by CalHOPE
49ers EDU and CalHOPE partnered to safely deliver physical copies of the 49ers EDU Playbook to schools and community organizations around the Bay Area, forming the Playbook Patrol. By distributing these playbooks, CalHOPE and 49ers EDU have brought STEAM enrichment opportunities to communities with less access to digital resources. Using football to engage students in STEAM concepts, the playbook allows students to explore STEAM outside of the school setting fueling students' interests while simultaneously equipping parents and teachers to foster the next generation of leaders. Through this partnership, CalHOPE and 49ers EDU have committed to providing 10,000+ students with this physical resource in hopes to alleviate the digital divide and reach those furthest from resource and opportunity.
