The Princeton Varsity Club (PVC) is pleased to announce this year’s class of seven Princeton varsity student-athletes who will travel to Vietnam this summer to participate in the Coach for College program, a global initiative aimed at promoting higher education through sports. As part of the Coach for College program, the student-athletes will teach academics, athletics and life skills to middle school aged Vietnamese students while working alongside Vietnamese coaches and instructors.
The 2022 camps mark the tenth year that the PVC has sponsored Tiger student-athletes to participate in Coach for College, having now afforded this international service opportunity to more than 60 student-athletes. After participating in the program virtually last year, this will be the first time in two years that student-athletes will return to Vietnam since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

- Hanne Borstlap ’22 – Women’s Track & Field

Coach for College is a program open to varsity student-athletes, which aims to increase higher education attainment among disadvantaged Vietnamese adolescents using the excitement and life skills provided by participation in sports-related activities. The program provides American college athletes with an intensive and collaborative service experience that develops the skills needed to exercise leadership and commitment to positive social change.
