GARETT IN THE COMMUNITY
Throughout his career in the NFL, Garett has been devoted to connecting and giving back to the organizations and communities that mean the most to him.
VERTICAL SKILLS ACADEMY
Since 2020, Garett has worked with the students and faculty at Vertical Skills Academy, a non-profit school located in Evergreen, Colorado that specializes in empowering students with dyslexia and related language-based learning differences to reach their full potential through the use of explicit, evidence-based, multi-sensory instruction. In addition to virtual meet ups, Garett has made in-person visits to VSA and welcomed them for a panel discussion and game at Empower Field at Mile High.
MY CAUSE MY CLEATS
Every year, the NFL promotes My Cause My Cleats, an initiative that celebrates the positive impact that players have made in communities across America and provides them with an opportunity to highlight the cause-related work they are passionate about on the field. In 2022, Garett chose to highlight Apraxia Kids and the National Center for Learning Disabilities.
FREE YOUTH FOOTBALL CAMPS
June 2022 marked Garett and GB3’s 3rd Annual Free Youth Football Camp for kids entering 3rd through 8th grade in the Greater Salt Lake City area. Campers ran through drills, played mini games, and learned fundamental football techniques. An autograph session and barbecue dinner presented by Traeger rounded out the evening.
