By offering opportunities to share experience and learn skills, the education programs at the Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing, Jiangsu province, are meant to inspire athletes to explore more possibilities in life beyond sports.

Although winning medals allows the young athletes to shine in major sporting events, receiving a good education will guarantee them a smooth transition from athletic highs to post-sports success, said officials and young Olympians at the Nanjing Youth Olympic Games.

Inspired by the Youth Olympic Games' spirit of sharing and learning, the International Olympic Committee and Nanjing organizing committee are highlighting educational programs that will be provided during the event to motivate young athletes to develop skills and interests other than sports from an early age.
