These trading cards are earned and eagerly collected by elementary students who have various opportunities to meet their role models in person.
The Trading Card program benefits both older and younger students. Older students want to be featured on the cards and work hard to be recognized as a good role model. Once featured, the high school “starts” realize they have fans who look up to them, encouraging them to continue making good choices. The younger students are empowered by the Trading Card program because they realize that the people they look up to were once kids just like them. CAN role models are people they personally meet, genuinely learn from, and someday grow up to be.
