The IDEALS SALT program was created to fill the demand from high schools to get more of their student athletes involved in the IDEALS Leadership School curriculum and unique leadership experience. In 2011 IDEALS converted the current Leadership School curriculum into a professional DVD series with accompanying Facilitator Guide and Student Worksheets so that high schools across the country can hold the program on their respective campuses. The program is still geared primarily for junior student athletes from all sports and genders.
IDEALS stresses to each participant to follow the natural progression of: Learn. Lead. Leverage
Be a constant learner. Take full advantage of all the material provided through our Leadership Programs and be actively engaged in group discussions. Optimize your experience.
Each participant was chosen to attend our Leadership Program because he/ she have shown the ability or potential to be a leader on their teams and in their schools. After they have been through our Program, they need to commit to put into action what they’ve learned. Be a leader on your respective teams and with your school peers.
By participating in our Leadership Program you’ve differentiated yourself from the majority of others you’ll be competing with in life. You’ve earned a “competitive advantage”. Just like in sports, you want to Leverage that advantage. By doing so, you allow yourself to become all you can be as a person, leader, role model, spouse, parent, friend, and in your career.
Inspiring excellence. Empowering young people. Developing leaders.

“While we certainly have talent, we aren’t overly blessed with dominant studs in hardly any sport. It hit me while talking with my Principal that I truly believe we’re seeing the impact of SALT, from kids buying in, to coaches being very supportive of the program. We’ve had talent in years past without these results so you have to consider what is different. Certainly SALT isn’t the only factor, but it’s definitely had a positive impact. Kind of neat to see! After 4 years of listening to coaches complain about a dearth of leadership, I haven’t heard a single comment these last 2 years other than how much more cohesive our kids are. Excited to get started in year three!”

SALT Frequently Asked Questions
If, after reading the FAQ’s below, you need more information on the SALT Program, please contact Jack Williams for further information.
There is a nominal licensing fee for use of the program.
We want each team, their coach and school to benefit from a full year of the training of those students participating in the program. By choosing Juniors, they will have completed the training prior to the end of their Junior year and their team and school can benefit from that training during their Senior year. A school can elect to allow some Seniors in the program if they so choose. Some teams may not have many Juniors and the coach can use their discretion as to whom they choose to represent them.
Schools have the following options:
- Standard SALT Model – Representatives from each team are selected to form SALT group and meet weekly or twice a month whichever is appropriate. They then are asked to go back and share/ influence their respective teams.
- Coach Led Model -If specific coaches would like to lead their juniors and seniors through the program and personalize it to their sport, they can do so. They determine the frequency of meetings.
- Team Model – Specific videos are also available so that entire team can participate in program.
The school simply has the coaches select representatives from each team to form your SALT group if choosing Standard Model above. The school selects a SALT Coordinator to be the contact point with IDEALS. They should set up meeting room arrangements. IDEALS will provide the school / SALT Coordinator the DVD series, Facilitator Guides and Student Worksheets.
That is up to the school. IDEALS suggests if the AD or one of the Head Coaches don’t have time, ask a young assistant coach who relates well to the students be selected to serve in that role. It could also serve as part of that coach’s professional development program. Some schools select multiple SALT Coordinators to team up.
IDEALS has designed the program (video and exercises) to be completed in one hour. Videos range from 16-22 minutes. Additional time is for breakout discussions from questions in video. Each school can elect to go slightly longer if they want to add time for socializing, “ice breaker” activities or other activities.
IDEALS recommends holding SALT meetings either weekly or every other week. If you space the meetings out any further you don’t get the carryover from previous meetings.
You can contact Jack Williams the Founder and CEO of IDEALS direct. He is available for support on any questions or issues that you would like to discuss. He can be contacted at [email protected] or 678-682-3306. His contact information is also on the IDEALS SALT brochure.
Absolutely. IDEALS has designed the program to provide you the basic curriculum that we’ve proven (done right) will make an impact on your athletes as leaders and role models. IDEALS encourages you to think about other activities that can enhance your individual program and continue meeting after the video series has been completed. IDEALS would also like to hear about these types of enhancements so they can be shared with other participating schools.
IDEALS will continue to add additional video content they feel appropriate each year and make these additional videos available under the same type of arrangement.
In the fall of 2014 all of the material needed by a school will be found on the redesigned IDEALS/ SALT website. All videos, facilitator guide, student worksheets, handouts etc. will be found in a special school section on website for school to access.
Schools will be asked to make copies of the student worksheets to handout to each student. This allows them to have a way to take organized notes to refer to in the future. IDEALS recommends the school also consider providing a 1⁄2 inch notebook for the students to keep their notes in.
The Mission of SALT
The Social Action Leadership Team (SALT) is the Spirit-led social justice ministry of the Chapel of the Resurrection at Valparaiso University in which students from all walks of life come together in community to embody the Christian call to be the “salt of the earth” (Matt. 5:13). SALT helps students develop a passion and practice of social action. SALTers reflect God’s love for people by cultivating the skills of community organizing, raising awareness, and fund development. SALTers are equipped to lead lives of social justice and serve as agents for positive change in their communities.
Every year, the Social Action Leadership Team (SALT) of the Chapel of the Resurrection at Valparaiso University selects one project for which to raise money, the World Relief Campaign. This is in addition to numerous activities done locally which generate hundreds of volunteer hours by students and benefit the Valparaiso area. SALT is involved in local volunteering, spring break service trips, and church-based community organizing.

World Relief Campaign 2021
This year the Social Action Leadership Team (SALT) set out to support the work of the Community Change Center: We Are One Inc.The Community Change Center is a new organization based in Gary, Indiana and founded by a recent graduate of Valparaiso University’s Social Work department, Samantha Burgett. Our campaign entitled “A Haven for Hope: Restorative Housing” is working to raise money in an effort to rehabilitate two residential properties that will house formerly incarcerated individuals. SALTers had the opportunity to go to the properties and do some work while learning more about the programs that will be offered.
This semester SALT has been able to put on several successful events both virtually and in person such as 2,000 Dollar Day, Pie-A-Professor, and our Color 4 a Cause 5K. We focused on advocacy, awareness-raising, and creating partnerships within the community. Through these efforts we have raised just over $20,000. This amount surpasses what they need in materials but in order for them to not be reliant on volunteered labor, we would love to raise even more. We will be keeping the campaign open until the end of May and would like to thank everyone who joined us in making this possible.
To follow our campaign efforts follow SALT on Instagram or Facebook at @valposalt. To make a donation please use the Facebook Donation button, visit our website https://worldreliefcampaign.org/, or checks can be made out to the World Relief Campaign and sent to 1600 Chapel Drive, Valparaiso, IN 46383.

I apologize, I'm sorry, said the driver, but the bus broke down. All the passengers got out, and I dragged after this woman, twenty paces behind her. The sun continued to heat, and she took off her jacket, hanging it over her shoulder.

She tickles the phallus with her tongue, then puts her mouth down again, helping with her pens, and I can't stand it, releasing. A hot wave. My sister swallows the semen under my lingering groan, notes the relaxation of a satisfied brother and puts her face on my pubis.
