Do you remember growing up and the lessons in your life that helped make you who you are today? Do you remember that special person who changed your life because s/he saw something special in you and pushed you to be the best you could be? What about joining a sports team, the connection you had with your teammates or the bond you felt with your coach?
r Not all kids get the chance to make these kinds of memories. For kids in low-income communities, it is often too unsafe to play outside and finding positive role models outside of the home is a challenge. This increases children’s risk of not graduating high school, being victims of violence or suffering from childhood obesity.
r Nearby after-school programs are working hard to put together sports teams for girls and boys in low-income communities, but they urgently need great coaches: the most important ingredient to change the game for all kids. They urgently need you!
r We are currently recruiting volunteers to coach 2-6 hours per week for an 8-10 week season. Sports opportunities range depending on your interest and availability, and most of our sites are public transit accessible. No coaching experience is necessary!
