At SITS National Headquarters (Soccer in the Streets), we have embraced the ABW philosophy to the point of incorporating its tenets and values into our new Positive Choice mentoring program. ABW materials have been very helpful in summarizing these basic guidelines and hopefully will enable us to get the message across to thousands of young people in the U.S.
