Led by SAAB members, Georgia Tech student-athletes are involved in various community outreach projects each year. Despite their busy academic and athletic schedules, student-athletes realize the importance of being involved in their community by being role models/mentors for aspiring young students/athletes, lending a hand in various community events, and representing Georgia Tech Athletics in campus-wide community outreach projects.
Annual projects include: Michael Isenhour Toy Drive, Girls on the Run, Jackets Without Borders, and reoccurring visits to local children’s hospitals and Boys and Girls clubs.
The Jackets Without Borders program began in 2017 to allow student-athlete the opportunity to immerse into a new culture, while serving the needs of a community abroad. In 2018, Georgia Tech Athletics traveled to Puerto Rico with 18 student-athletes to assist with hurricane relief efforts, and will continue to return to this community annually to help the partnering community.
