Direct Programs: 49ers EDU Presented by Chevron

Digital Huddle Powered by Cisco, Dignity Health, and SAP

The Digital Huddle is a hub of free education and fitness resources for teachers to use as a part of their everyday curriculum. The Foundation's direct programs 49ers EDU presented by Chevron and 49ers PREP presented by U.S. Bank have been creating online resources for parents, coaches, teachers and students since at-home and distance learning began in April. Over 200 teachers and coaches across 45 Bay Area school districts have adopted the Foundation’s online fitness and education programs impacting nearly 92,000 Bay Area youth in just a few short months.

Since the start of the pandemic, the 49ers Foundation has been committed to not only making content available to Bay Area schools, but also students across the country and the world. EDU and PREP's programs are free to the end user and also available in Spanish to ensure that youth of all ages, backgrounds and genders have access to education and fitness resources to succeed both in school and on the field.

49ers EDU Presented by Chevron Playbook Patrol

The 49ers EDU team is tackling the digital divide by delivering over 10,500 printed versions of the Digital Playbook to teachers whose students do not have access to computers through the Playbook Patrol program. 49ers EDU is delivering FREE hardcopies of the Learning Playbook to schools and organizations in the Bay Area community. The playbook includes over 30 pages of STEAM and Football activities and can be used as a fun activity for K-8 students to enjoy at home or used as a supplemental material in an asynchronous lesson. All content is Common Core Standard and Next Generation Science Standard (NGSS) aligned making it easy for teachers to integrate the lessons into their curriculum. 49ers EDU has hand delivered 10,548 Playbooks to 26 schools and organizations in the Bay Area, with 12% of schools being Tittle 1 designated sites.
