Coaching Corps seek Operations Associate

Research shows that youth sports participation leads to improvements in physical health, educational achievement and emotional well-being. Young people in underserved communities participate in sports at half the rate of their peers living in more resourced communities. Many opportunities to play quality, organised sports with a trained coach simply do not exist in many under resourced communities.

Organisation Overview

Coaching Corps is dedicated to increasing these opportunities for all kids, regardless of circumstance. We do this by providing afterschool programs with a workforce of volunteer coaches trained in using sports to provide kids with the building blocks for healthy development. Our coach training and support equips coaches with the knowledge and skills they need to coach young people who live in underserved communities and face a unique set of challenges.
