His 2,277 passing yds. in his 1st eight career games are the 4th-most by a QB since 1970.
Mullens and his teammates surprised guests of the CityTeam Men's Program and House of Grace on November 20, 2018, at Levi's Stadium. The group believed they were just taking a tour of the stadium, but they were in fact joining the 49ers players for a night full of exciting events. The guests received a makeover and haircut, selected a new outfit from Dockers, snapped a new headshot and then shared a Thanksgiving dinner with the 49ers players.
The 49ers, in partnership with Fresh Lifelines for Youth (FLY), visited the Santa Clara Juvenile Hall to work with residents on frustration management on October 9, 2018. Mullens and his teammates held a discussion with the young people, and later divided into groups to engage in football drills that demonstrated the proper way to focus negative energy in a positive manner. After the drills, they held another discussion centered on making right decisions when it comes to frustration management.
In partnership with the One Love Foundation, Mullens, his 49ers teammates and their significant others participated in a film-based workshop with local high school students about healthy and unhealthy relationships. The group watched a film together, and thereafter, held group discussions about the implications of the relationship behaviors depicted in the film. The One Love Foundation believes that love is a skill we can work on, and focuses on three main elements to convey their message: content, conversation and community action.
In September of 2017, the San Francisco 49ers hosted the annual 49ers Mentorship Academy, in partnership with USA Football. Mullens and other notable 49ers rookies led local high school football players through an evening of leadership development. The three-step program is designed to develop the skills necessary for players to succeed and lead on and off the field. Players from Christopher High School, Gilroy High School, Lowell High School, Milpitas High School, Santa Clara High School, Westmont High School and Wilcox High School were in attendance.
