TeamMate’s Mission

The mission of TeamMates is to positively impact the world by inspiring youth to reach their full potential through mentoring. The TeamMates Program began in 1991 with the vision of University of Nebraska Head Football Coach Tom Osborne and his wife Nancy. The program began with twenty-two football players who met with middle school students in the Lincoln Public Schools. TeamMates has expanded and currently there are more than 10,000 matches in over 160 communities across Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Wyoming, and South Dakota! If you would like to become a part of this fun and advantageous program, please contact coordinator, Jill Davis at to learn about the application process and learn about upcoming training dates!
