Company Description

Beyond is an international education and service-learning organization that uses sports as a vehicle to explore the world and create meaningful cross-cultural relationships. Beyond has been 'Connecting the World through Sports' since the summer of 2010. The organization was founded by Willamette University teammates Josh Erickson and Grant Leslie who first got the ball rolling as business school classmates at the Atkinson Graduate School of Management. Josh was an Assistant Coach with Willamette's basketball team while Grant studied abroad for a semester of business school in Europe. Unique experiences, similar visions and a whole lot of help from Willamette's Athletic Department, International Education Office and Business School provided a foundation for a new student-athlete experience. The Costa Rican sports community as well as coaches, student-athletes and study abroad professionals from across the United States have embraced the company's concept, shared its passion, and joined its team. In the last four years, coaches and athletes from over 80 different colleges across the United States have shared the Beyond experience, shaping the program into what it is today. The company hopes to continue growing opportunities and its impact in Costa Rica, and before too long, in additional locations around the world.
