Opportunity: Sport-Based Youth Development at Adelphi University

Applications are open for tuition-free Sport-Based Youth Development Fellowship at Adelphi University in New York City, deadline 15 March 2020.

Utilising innovative teaching, coaching and administrative approaches, the College of Education and Health Sciences offers the sport-based youth development specialisation through its M.A. in Physical Education and M.S. in Sport Management degrees. Students develop the professional knowledge and skills to design, lead, manage, market and evaluate programmes and organisations locally and around the world. Students also master the concepts of funding and grant writing, with opportunities to plan and implement fundraising efforts as well as write, submit and review successful grant proposals.

Available at the Garden City campus and the Manhattan Center, this sport-based youth development specialisation includes experiential education courses, hybrid and online courses, and a field-based internship. Students are prepared for leadership positions in nonprofit organizations, school systems, sport camps and athletic leagues, as well as the development and corporate social responsibility sectors in the United States and around the world. It is designed especially for administrators, teachers, coaches, youth development workers, recreation leaders and community leaders.
