    and compassion for America’s most disadvantaged youth. Whether inner-city,

evaluation process
In 2009, the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation contracted with Keswick Advisors to perform
an independent evaluation of our national Badges for Baseball program. Keswick
Advisors was founded by Dr. Jeffrey L. Sedgwick, former professor at the University
of Massachusetts at Amherst and Assistant Attorney General of the United States.
Dr. Sedgwick evaluated changes in the behavior of youth who participated in
the Badges for Baseball program. Both quantitative and qualitative data on
participant behaviors were collected from parents, teachers, mentors, and law
enforcement officers in a comprehensive effort to monitor and assess program
effectiveness in encouraging academic involvement, positive peer group
associations, and avoidance of substance abuse.


A random stratified sampling of all Badges for Baseball program sites was
conducted, and 25% of the sites were chosen to participate in the evaluation
process. We trained staff members on evaluation implementation at each of the
selected 27 sites to ensure data integrity and retain participation.



  outcoMes

In order to help all program sites implement Cal Ripken,
Sr. Foundation programming at the highest level, we
provide ongoing program training for all partners. Using
best practices and information gathered from formal
program evaluation, the Foundation provides training
in baseball/softball instruction, integration of character
education into physical activities, and positive coaching
and mentoring techniques. The training also includes help
in building successful program schedules and recruiting
and engaging law enforcement volunteers.


All trainings are designed to serve program partners
using a variety of techniques and include large group
presentations, small group activities, written documents,
and an opportunity for coaches to network with other
program staff members from their cities, states, or regions
in order to learn from each other.       Over the course
of a program year, the Foundation staff assists sites in
expanding and enhancing programs through conference
calls, web-based conferences, and site visits as necessary
or requested by program sites.

     At the heart of the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation mission to help youth realize their
     potential is the Healthy Choices, Healthy Children program. Using an engaging
     and interactive format, Healthy Choices, Healthy Children seeks to help youth
     understand vital life lessons needed to display a positive, productive, and healthy
     lifestyle. The program is based on the teachings of Cal, Sr. and includes lessons
     such as teamwork, communication, personal responsibility, and leadership.
     These translate to life both on and off the ball field and give at-risk youth tools
     they can use everyday. Designed to fit organizations and schools of all shapes
     and sizes, the program drives home the messages of life using two basic formats:


     classrooM edition
     An engaging program meant to be delivered in a structured classroom setting
     that features a variety of learning tools designed to inspire and encourage youth
     to live their lives knowing that others care about their success and their ability to
     make positive, productive decisions.


     teaM edition
     A condensed version of the classroom edition specifically designed for use
     in conjunction with an athletic program.        This program gives coaches and
     instructors tools to incorporate life lessons on the field during teachable moments,
     encouraging youth to live the lessons of Healthy Choices, Healthy Children in
     every aspect of their lives.




                   221 sites participated using the curriculum
                                  72 cities

“
one youth in particular really grasped the Healthy
choices, Healthy children lessons, and staff watched
this young man literally blossom over the course of the
summer. we selected this boy to attend the ripken
overnight camp due to his outstanding behavior,
sportsmanship, and attitude. He really took the lessons
to heart. last winter and spring this young man was
having issues, and his father was recently incarcerated.
by giving him opportunities to spread his wings and
learn new things this young man has become one of
our leaders at the ripe old age of 13. His turnaround
has made all staff proud, and he continues with his
own personal growth by being on his school’s honor roll
with a 3.8 gpa in the first mark period. this young man
learned so much through his participation in this program

that we are anxious to see who the next turn-around
youth will be this year.

     In partnership with the United States Department of Justice, the Cal Ripken,
     Sr. Foundation created Badges for Baseball, a juvenile delinquency crime
     prevention program. The Foundation includes local law enforcement across
     the country as mentors and coaches during the critical out of school hours
     when kids are most likely to commit or become a victim of crime.


     Statewide partnerships help the Foundation impact kids over the long term
     while using resources efficiently and effectively. In 2009, statewide Badges
     for Baseball programs ran in Massachusetts, Mississippi, North Carolina,
     Virginia, and Wisconsin in partnership with Attorneys General and law
     enforcement agencies.



       28,000 kids participated in Badges for Baseball last year
            221 sites participated in the program
                          15 states
           628 law enforcement officers were trained

                the united states Marshals service has been honored to join
                forces with the cal ripken, sr. foundation to promote the agency’s
                core values of justice, integrity, and service through the Badges
                for Baseball program. the most important component of the
                program is the relationship we’re building between children and
                law enforcement as mentors. Many of the kids that we serve don’t
                have role models, and the deputy Marshals teach the children
                about what it means to make good choices while showing them
                how to resist gangs, drugs, and temptations of criminal activity.
                as a law enforcement professional, when i see youngsters turn the
                right way—go the ripken way—i know then that they’re going to be

     Hundreds of kids come from across the country to Aberdeen, Maryland,

     for a week-long, overnight camp hosted by the Foundation. All of the

     campers are provided with baseball equipment, clothing, lodging, and

     airfare.



     Through our partnership with the U.S. Marshals Service, U.S. Deputy

     Marshals volunteer and serve as coaches and mentors. The kids

     experience a mobile command center, a helicopter landing, canine

     units, and other exciting demonstrations led by the Marshals. Of course,

     the kids also make friends, play baseball and softball, and share new

     experiences like kayaking, a ropes course, and rock wall climbing. The

     multitude of fun activities and guest speakers each evening reinforce

     the important life lessons being taught during the camps. Kids learn

     about the importance of teamwork, personal responsibility, and

     communication both on and off the field.

                  Communities across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts kicked off a second
                  full year of Badges for Baseball programming in 2009. Massachusetts was the
                  Foundation’s first state-funded, statewide Badges for Baseball program, made
                  possible as a result of the financial support provided by the Massachusetts
                  State Legislature and United Water and the programmatic support of the
                  Massachusetts Sheriff’s Association. This program has created opportunities for
                  community based organizations, law enforcement agencies, kids, and their
                  families to participate in special events while traveling throughout their town,
                  county, and state to other program sites. In a state with a strong baseball history,
                  local teams - including major and minor league partners - have supported the
                  program, allowing kids to watch the game played at the highest level.


                  The sustained partnership is helping to develop positive relationships between
                  law enforcement, kids, and communities over the long term. As one of last year’s
                  participants said, “law enforcement is here to serve and protect, not to arrest
                  and put in jail.”


                                                 Mississippi
                  The Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation partnered with the Mississippi Department of
                  Human Services (MDHS) with support from Attorney General Jim Hood to offer
                  the Badges for Baseball program for Mississippi’s youth in 2009.        Badges for
                  Baseball was offered in 10 communities across Mississippi to serve as a positive
                  outlet for youth during out-of-school hours.


                  As a result of the financial support of MDHS, the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation
                  matched the $175,000 in funding provided. Each program partner received

     INDEPENDENT	AUDITORS’	REPORT

     To The Board of Directors of the
     Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation, Inc.:

     We have audited the accompanying statements of financial position of the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation, Inc. (the Foundation) as of December 31, 2009 and 2008 and
     the related statements of activities and cash flows for the years then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Foundation’s management. Our
     responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.

     We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America and the standards applicable to financial audits
     contained in Government Auditing Standards, issued by the Comptroller General of the United States. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit
     to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence
     supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by
     management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

     In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation, Inc. as of
     December 31, 2009 and 2008, and the changes in its net assets and its cash flows for the years then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted
     in the United States of America.

     In accordance with Government Auditing Standards, we have also issued our report dated April 30, 2010 on our consideration of the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation, Inc.’s
     internal control over financial reporting and on our tests of its compliance with certain provisions of laws, regulations, contracts and grant agreements and other
     matters. The purpose of that report is to describe the scope of our testing of internal control over financial reporting and compliance and the results of that testing, and
     not to provide an opinion on the internal control over financial reporting or on compliance. That report is an integral part of an audit performed in accordance with
     Government Auditing Standards and should be considered in assessing the results of our audits.

     Our audits were conducted for the purpose of forming an opinion on the basic financial statements of the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation, Inc. taken as a whole. The
     accompanying schedule of expenditures of Federal awards is presented for purposes of additional analysis as required by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget
     Circular A-133, Audits of States, Local Governments, and Non-Profit Organizations, and is not a required part of the basic financial statements. Such information has
     been subjected to the auditing procedures applied in the audit of the basic financial statements and, in our opinion, is fairly stated, in all material respects, in relation
     to the basic financial statements taken as a whole.

How you can Help
        There are many ways that you can help the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation.
        Your financial support will allow us to continue to offer important programs
        for underserved youth.


        Donate	Online	- It’s easy! Make a tax-deductible donation online at
        www.ripkenfoundation.org.


        Match	your	gift -	Contact your company’s human resources department
        to find out if your employer matches charitable donations, and you could
        double your investment.


        Event	Sponsorships - Sponsor one of our many special events throughout
        the year.


        Gifts	 of	 Stock	 - If you use publicly-traded stocks, bonds, or mutual fund
        shares to make your gift, you will receive an additional tax benefit: the
        IRS allows you to make your transfer to the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation
        without recognizing capital gains on the appreciation. You can make a
        larger donation than you could make with cash and receive a larger tax
        deduction.


        Planned	 Giving -	 Regardless of your age or the size of your estate, there
        are many vehicles that allow you to balance your own income needs, the
        needs of your family, and your philanthropic interests.


        You can also contact our offices at 1.877.RIPKEN1 about gift opportunities.
