February 6, 2014 marks the opening of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games. Sports are an important way to help prepare youth for success off the field, as well as be a tool to bring people together in friendship and peace. Please join us as we consider sports' contribution to youth development, and how competition, international exposure, and the Olympics experience encourage friendship, tolerance, and peace among young people and their communities worldwide.
