Janet Carter

President and Chief Executive Officer

Janet Carter is Chief Executive Officer of Coaching Corps, a nonprofit that believes every child needs a caring and consistent adult outside the home who guides them to believe in and become their best selves. Coaching Corps enlists volunteers as sports coaches with afterschool programs serving low-income communities and then trains and supports them to serve as mentors and role models while fostering social-emotional and character development skills critical to success in school and in life. Coaching Corps coaches work with 30,000 kids a year throughout California, and in Baltimore, Boston, Orlando and Atlanta.

Prior to joining Coaching Corps, Janet was Vice President of Futures Without Violence, formally the Family Violence Prevention Fund, where she helped grow the organization from a local nonprofit to a national leader in policy, social norm change, and institutional reform aimed at ending family violence. She was recognized by the Annie E. Casey Foundation for her national leadership in developing interventions for kids exposed to the trauma of violence in the family. Janet has served as Chair of the Children and Families Leadership Development Fellowship National Network for four years. She lives in San Francisco and was raised in Birmingham, England, and Detroit.
