"Great coaches don’t leave kids in times of need. Neither does Coaching Corps. We train people to be great sports coaches for kids in low-income communities. Central to our training is the importance of always being there for your athletes, in good times and bad. With the suspension of youth sports, kids need us even more now. While we can’t match great coaches with afterschool youth sports programs in the communities where we work, we can continue to recruit volunteers to meet the urgent needs of kids and their families during these uncertain times. That’s where you come in. See below for how you can help."- Janet Carter, President and CEO
"We are currently dealing with two viruses in this country, COVID-19 and RACISM-20. One kills the body, and the other kills the spirit. We must not let either win."- Arnold Perkins, Coaching Corps Founding Trustee
