As the end of the year approaches, there are many opportunities to help support Up2Us Sports' mission of helping youth achieve their potential by providing them coaches trained in positive youth development.
At Up2Us Sports we are thankful for all of the sponsors who make our work possible. Because of your gifts, we are able to train coaches to mentors and place them in communities where kids need them the most. This week, we want to highlight some of the people and local sponsors that have helped us grow and expand to new communities in the last year.
I have been lucky, I found an organization and culture that I have connected with. My comfort at Up2Us Sports has always started with the people. Everyone here cares about the work we’re doing, they’re passionate, smart, and hard-working. The environment makes coming to work every day really easy. I also just love the work.
During college I had fallen in love with research and I wanted to know what it would be like to work at a non-profit which made data-driven decisions. Thus, I took a role as an AmeriCorps VISTA doing monitoring and evaluation at Up2Us Sports.
Up2Us Sports is proud to celebrate coaches today, and every day. Over the past six years, we have provided 16,000 coaches and youth sport administrators with the training they need to make a lasting impact. We believe that a trained coach can help youth in under-resourced communities succeed on and off the field.
