AFL's mentoring program is based on a five-pillar curriculum that encapsulates a student-athlete's basic AOR, or Areas Of Responsibility (Through Sports) :
(1) Behavior Life Skills
(3) Personal Growth
The program delivers pillar-specific instruction primarily via individual worktexts, with each pillar subdivided into multiple content modules.
Mentors also have access to proprietary AFL resources like PowerPoint presentations to facilitate group mentoring sessions and parent-focused workshops that seek to educate and appeal to the highly-influential custodial dynamic inherent in AFL's mentor model.
The AFL curriculum is designed to serve students in grades 7-12. A student must successfully meet a set of nomination requirements for enrollment, and agree to uphold contractual expectations to remain in the program. Participation in AFL is a privilige, not a right; therefore, expulsion is a remedy for willful or apathetic noncompliance. AFL refers to its student participants as "Recruits", and to its mentors as "Coaches"' for the express purpose of maintaining a positive, sports-minded backdrop for all teaching and learning exchanges. Our Motto: "Just be a good dude!" (Translation: "Dare to be great in the classroom, in your community, and on the competition field.")
