Description

1.   Organizational Overview

In youth sports, a well-trained, caring coach can make all the difference, helping kids translate

skills learned on the playing field — persistence, teamwork, leadership and empathy — into

success in school and beyond.

 

In poverty-stricken communities, there are kids who want to play sports, but too often the key

ingredient is missing – a qualified, well-trained coach to fill that vital mentor role. Having a

strong role model can have an outsized impact on kids facing the daily stresses of poverty, from

higher rates of exposure to domestic violence and crime to skipping meals because often,

families are forced to choose between putting food on the table and paying the rent. Coaching Corps is fueling a movement of skilled coaches to give kids in these communities the sports mentors they want and deserve. By partnering with more than 200 afterschool programs

across the country, we’re providing more than 100,000 underprivileged kids a year with the

opportunity to play sports under the guidance of a caring, well-trained coach.
