Kids in the Game Community Impact Associate - Gender Equity
Kids in the Game is dedicated to developing New York City’s youth by providing opportunities through sports and fitness to the schools and communities we serve. Our goal is to develop the next generation of leaders by developing healthy habits, an active lifestyle, and promoting personal growth through play and competition. During the school year, Kids in the Game is rooted in dozens of schools around New York City, offering recess, after-school, physical education, and sports instruction. In addition, Kids in the Game operates summer camps, sports clinics (basketball, soccer, volleyball), and special events. As Kids in the Game continued to grow, the leadership team recognized the inequity in quality opportunities among kids growing up in different city neighborhoods. The Kids in the Game Foundation, a 501 c3 was formed to address this issue, particularly for competitive sports programs where there is a stark gap in athletic, community building, and life-skill programming opportunities. As our Foundation continues to grow, our team is excited to continue pushing to reach more kids in more neighborhoods and create a more inclusive New York City. We are looking for talented, dedicated individuals to join our team that believe in the power of sport. We are looking to launch two initiatives in 2020/2021 - Gender Equity and Education & Youth Leadership that will require our VISTA members to fully emerge themselves in our company culture and bring unique skill sets to push us forward. We will look to our VISTA members to independently and by working closely with our team to 1) develop growth strategies 2) lead targeted fundraising efforts 3) create program curriculum for specific projects. We are looking for a VISTA that isn't afraid of a challenge and is excited about tackling a new project. Kids in the Game has a long history of hosting VISTA members and we are excited to carry on the tradition and create a meaningful year of impact.
