“With SYBL, we have the honor and privilege of reaching thousands of young athletes around our community and creating safe spaces for them to shape into the leaders of tomorrow,” said Dr. Kara Allen, Chief People, Impact & Belonging Officer for SS&E. “We cherish the opportunity to form meaningful relationships with SYBL athletes through a game we all love, and to enrich their learning, growing and healing. And of course, our impact would not be possible without the generous support and longstanding partnership of Pizza Hut.”
