The Calgary Stampeders are proud to partner with TELUS for a new community program focused on youth empowerment and online safety.

The program — “Stamp of a Champ” — features Stampeders alumni Jabari Arthur and Randy Chevrier in addition to current players Rob Cote and Bo Levi Mitchell. The Stamps representatives will be visiting various schools throughout Calgary to encourage young people to take affirmative action in enriching their own lives and the lives of others.

Arthur, Cote and Mitchell will educate youth on internet and smartphone education throughout the months of April and May. As part of the TELUS Stamp of a Champ program, the TELUS WISE footprint presentation will be delivered to students between the ages of 7-14 and focus on the importance of maintaining a clean digital footprint. The second component of the program, TELUS WISE in control, will cover how high school and post-secondary students can grow and protect their online reputation.

Other topics to be addressed include the importance of nutrition, active lifestyles, anti-bullying, staying in school, goal-setting and self-esteem and never giving up.

Prizing will be awarded to a select number of students at each event while all attendees will receive a ticket offer to a Stampeder game.
