Good Sports, Inc. Community Engagement VISTA
 
 
 
The mission of Good Sports is to give all kids the lifelong benefits of sport and physical activity by providing equipment, apparel and footwear to those most in need. Our goal is to help youth-serving programs increase the total amount of youth participants, enhance the experience for all young people involved, and create new opportunities in physical activity for the kids they serve. By supplying youth organizations with the gear they need, overhead costs are cut and more resources become available, helping children stay connected to their communities. Our VISTA will help build capacity of the organization by assisting in the design and management of community outreach initiatives, individual equipment support, and the curation of impactful stories that can be leveraged for impact reports and social media. Good Sports is seeking an individual who is comfortable on the phone, passionate about assisting communities in need, and solution-oriented.

Member Duties : The VISTA at Good Sports will be part of the 2021-22 Up2Us Sports VISTA cohort of 75 members. The VISTA will engage with leaders of youth sport programs and schools across the country, amplify their voice, and build awareness of Good Sports. This will result in a programmatic capacity build, increased scale and reach, strengthened relationships in communities in need (especially those of color), and heightening of Good Sports’ mission to erode financial and access barriers for kids in need. The VISTA will specifically re-structure and implement community outreach initiatives, collaborate on the design and implementation of a new support model, and elevate storytelling of Good Sports’ impact.
