The Fire Ninjas FC (www.fire-ninjas.com) is a non-profit youth program born with the goal of providing good quality soccer training around the Saint Louis area for free. With particular focus on youth athletes coming from underserved communities.

The Fire Ninjas project is supported by Sport Dojo (www.sport-dojo.com), a seed-stage startup that operates at the intersection of sports and data science to empower non- professional youth coaches and local providers through technology.

For this summer, we are seeking two motivated individuals that will help us with our mission of pushing the reset button on youth sports in America.

When? June 14th - August 13th 2021 (9 weeks)

How? Full-time (35-40 hours/week), remotely

Benefits: $2,312.73 Living allowance (+ either $311 end-of-service summer stipend or $1,345 education award)

Partner Program: Up2Us Sports AmeriCorps VISTA

Responsibilities:

As an Up2Us Sports Summer VISTA, you will work remotely at Sport Dojo in Saint Louis (MO). You will build the capacity of the organization by contributing to the youth soccer program restructuring, spearheading a community volunteer plan, collaborating with the development and marketing team to identify and pursue growth opportunities, or create social media content. During the program, you will have the opportunity to gain skills through professional development, interact with passionate professionals, and positively impact the sports-based youth development movement.

The ideal candidate will have prior experience in any of the following fields: marketing, community engagement, sports programs’ operations or fundraising. Nevertheless, motivation, alignment to our values and commitment to our mission are to us more important than any skill or experience.

If you are enthusiastic about sports and giving back to your community, this nine-week summer program, running from June 14th - August 13th, is the right fit for you! Apply by April 24th by sending an email to info@dojo-science.com with your resume, contact details, and a few words about what makes you want to work with us.
