// KEY SERVICES PROVIDED
In the wake of Nov. 30, 2021, and Tate Myre’s death, the Myre family felt called to action. They needed a way to memorialize Tate and his vast contributions to his community and beyond.
The Myre family knew they had to act on the rare, innate quality Tate had boundlessly embodied and shared. They compiled a list of 12 “Tate Traits” and began to build on the idea of creating a legacy that recognized his dedication to community-building.
42 Strong, a youth mentorship program named after Tate Myre’s football jersey number, was developed in honor of this extraordinary young person’s natural ability to serve as a counterforce to the troubling mental health trends among his peers. The program reflects the peer support Tate provided, which improves interpersonal connections among the youth whose lives he touched.
42 Strong pairs mentors in grades 10-12 with a mentee who is anywhere from 7th-9th grade. The goal is to help create a stronger bond within the community, especially among teenagers.
