All week long for AmeriCorps Week, we will be featuring coaches and VISTA’s who share their own story on what serving through AmeriCorps means to them, and impact it has had on them and their community.
Women's History Month is held annually in March to highlight the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society. Up2Us Sports works with five female ambassadors who have all made their mark on their respective sports, and each hold a small - or in some cases, large - piece of history.
In this two-part series, we interview two of our coaches from Fenway High School in Boston, Massachusetts. They each spoke about their lives, coaching, National Girls and Women in Sports Day, Black History Month & womanhood. Our second story features Coach Melika Clark, who overcame the obstacles of her hometown and the loss of her mother to truly find her passion.
