We are so honored to be one of the first 4 Agility Grants awarded by the National Council on Problem Gambling. Funded by the National Football League Foundation, with additional support from FanDuel, this project will expand our Teen Problem Gambling Creative Group. This group has already done an incredible job raising awareness of teen problem gambling, and we’re now looking to grow. Do you know a teen looking to use their creativity to make a positive impact on the community? Are you an adult with skills and resources to support their efforts (ex. graphic design, marketing, community activism, connections with youth athletics, etc.)? Scan the code on the above flier to connect with us and learn more.

I'm a Problem and Compulsive Gambling Counselor and a former athlete. Always looking for opportunities to increase public awareness about problem gambling, I am particularly concerned about the potential impact of legalized sports wagering on athletes, a group already at increased risk for problem gambling. Though I am neutral on the subject of legal gambling, I advocate for those at risk to have access to education and other prevention tools, and for those already impacted by problem gambling to have access to treatment and support.
