Former NBA and University of Kentucky Standout Derek Anderson wants to leave a legacy of “helping other people that help other people.” Analyzed Sports was able to sit down and spend some time with Derek to see what type of programs he envisioned for his Acts of Kindness and Stamina Foundation that would help shape his legacy of helping other people.
Anderson was inspired by another Louisville Native in ‘The Greatest’ the late Muhammad Ali, along with average people such as janitors and neighborhood friends that performed randoms acts of kindness which encouraged him to start a “Life Skills” curriculum for young adults and college students called “Program You”
Derek states Program You is a program “where we can train young people how to think and prepare them for real life situations.”
Sitting in on the recording of the video to promote Program You, I was able to witness young people faced with life situations such as Domestic Violence, walking past people without speaking, and preparing for job interviews. Derek goes on to point out that it’s important to make decisions based off of your thoughts as opposed to making decisions based off of emotions.
Look for this program to be at a school near you, as Derek plans to tour high-schools, colleges, and universities across the country to try to get this curriculum implemented soon.
