Funding for afterschool programs is at risk of being eliminated with the President’s latest budget proposal. If this budget is approved, thousands of afterschool programs in underserved communities will be affected. The youth that our coaches serve every week will lose their safe places to play. Take a look at why afterschool programs are critical and what you can do to make your voice heard today.
Once the school bell rings thousands of youth in underserved communities across the country run onto playing fields, ready to meet their Coaching Corps coach. Thanks to you, we have been able to create opportunities for youth to connect with coaches from San Francisco to Baltimore. We could not have reached this incredible milestone without your support.

“It was a crazy rollercoaster of a day,” said Pope Rodnoi. Though Pope’s team had a tough season, he managed to coach his team to the championship game of the playoffs. After being down at the half, the team climbed back, forced overtime and eventually won the game. “The kids were so excited, I was so excited, it just felt electric,” he said. “I felt like a kid again.” That was the end of his first season with Coaching Corps.
