ANDREW MAC INTOSH

National Director, Leadership and Education Programs

As the National Director of Leadership and Education Programs, Andrew helps realize RISE’s initiatives by supporting the design, delivery and evaluation of curriculum and educational activities for varying audiences and contexts.

He has worked in the business sector for over 10 years leading the implementation of organizational development initiatives and developing performance management along with training and development strategies. More recently, due to his keen interest in sport and youth development, he has worked both within the United States as well as internationally helping various organizations to design and implement sport initiatives that build life skills and character. Before RISE he worked at Michigan State University’s Institute for the Study of Youth Sport as a Research and Teaching Assistant. He has also spent time working in Detroit assisting with the development of evaluation systems for youth sport programs and with the design and facilitation of training programs for coaches and mentors.

One of Andrew’s passions is understanding and enhancing the role that coaches can play as mentors for the youth with whom they engage. Another is the sport of soccer, which he cherishes for the friendships, life lessons, skills and opportunities that it has provided.
