youth in underserved areas

Up2Us Training focuses on coaches who work with youth in low-income communities who often experience stress and trauma as result of repeated exposure to negative behaviors. Our trauma-informed approach to coaching ensures that coaches can perform a critical role in helping youth in these communities to heal and thrive.
