As part of the #ThanksCoach campaign, we spoke to Chicago Training Center (CTC) Executive Director Ashley Mayer as well as with coaches Curtis Miranda and Chey Correa, a pair of former CTC participants who now serve as Up2Us Coaches for the program.
We offer Up2Us Sports member organizations the opportunity to host Up2Us Coaches or AmeriCorps VISTAs to work with youth and increase program capacity. In addition, we offer onsite training for organizations interested in training their staff and/or coaches in a variety of areas.
Help us launch #ThanksCoach, our national campaign to recognize the contributions of coaches throughout this country for National Coach Appreciation Day on November 4.
Through Up2Us Sports’ national coaching program, 300 AmeriCorps members will be trained to coach and mentor low-income youth to make better decisions, stay healthy, and reach their potential, through the power of sports.
The 6th annual event welcomed celebrities and pro athletes to Guastavino’s in NYC, raising more than $400,000 which will go towards training coaches in sports-based youth development and placing them in under-resourced communities.
