Coaching Corps

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: April 30, 2014, 8:46 PM

Description

Coaching Corps was founded on the twin truths that playing sports with well-trained coaches boosts kids' social, physical, and educational growth, and that gross disparities exist in participation levels between poor and middle-class youngsters, as well as between boys and girls. We work vigorously to eliminate these disparities by providing communities and after-school programs with the resources they need to use sports as a vehicle to improve health, education, and social outcomes for young people.

Coaching Corps partners with colleges and universities to recruit, train, and place college students as volunteer coaches in after-school programs. In addition, we identify and encourage best practices within the youth sports and after-school fields, and advocate for public and private support and investment in youth sports for kids living in low-income communities.

Over the last eight years, Coaching Corps has created over 100,000 after-school sports opportunities for young people living in low-income communities. Coaching Corps is recognized as the leading intermediary in California and beyond, connecting students from over 40 universities--among them the University of California, Berkeley, Stanford University, and San Diego State University--with the rewards of community service and with kids who need trained coaches as teachers and role models. Our team is building an influential and vocal constituency of young people, policy-makers, and opinion leaders in support of youth sports for all kids, regardless of their circumstances or the neighborhood they live in.
