To ensure that all kids get to reap the benefits of playing sports with a trained, caring coach.

Coaching Corps was founded in 2002 with support from the Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the San Francisco Foundation. Since its inception, Coaching Corps seeks to use sports and the power of coaches as vehicles for transformative change for youth in underserved communities.

To date, we have placed over 13,000 coaches with hundreds of afterschool sports programs, serving over 150,000 youth in underserved communities across the country.

By making trained, caring coaches available to established community partners, Coaching Corps coaches help create safe, structured environments that promote character-building, encourage an active and healthy lifestyle, and cultivate positive relationships with peers and adults.
