what people are saying about Courtney

Turner Fenton Secondary School

high school mentorship programs for at risk students

Pickering High School

"Courtney spoke to a small group of grade 11 and 12 Pickering High School students about his experience with football and the life lessons he learned from his successes and failures.  It is very rare that someone can captivate the attention of this group of young men to the point where they are silent and Courtney was able to do that.  The students were so interested that they stayed after the session to talk more with him.  Some of the students even said that they could have listened to him speak for another two hours. In a very short time he was able to genuinely connect with students and we are excited to continue our relationship with Courtney in the future!"
