Coaching Corps coaches are committed to changing the game for their young players both on and off the field. Volunteers believe the world can be a better place – but we all have to chip in to get there.
In addition to coaching, many Coaching Corps chapters also lend a hand to improve the communities their athletes live in.
On Monday, January 20th, 2014, the Los Angeles Coaching Corps contingent joined LA Works, a volunteer led organization for the Martin Luther King Day of Service.
The University of Southern California (USC) Chapter joined over 1,000 LA Works volunteers at Hillcrest Elementary in Baldwin Hills for some much needed grounds restoration. Hillcrest Elementary is a Title 1 school, which means that 40% or more of their students come from low-income families.
Coaching Corps coaches assisted in a variety of projects from painting murals, to planting flowers and plants in the school’s garden. Coaches also cleaned and painted school buildings.
“It is always a great experience to share your time, especially for the benefit of the kids, said Coach Gene De La Cruz. “Kudos to Coaching Corps for giving me the opportunity to be part of it!”
