The Princeton Varsity Club is proud to announce this year’s class of Princeton student-athletes who have been selected 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 experience, these student-athletes will travel to rural Vietnam for three weeks, where they will learn how to live and work alongside Vietnamese instructors to teach academics and athletics to middle school Vietnamese students.
The 2023 class marks an exciting milestone in Princeton’s partnership with Coach for College, making this the tenth group of student-athletes to travel abroad and participate in this incredible service opportunity. More than 60 Princeton student-athletes have now completed the program, with the following individuals set to participate this summer.
