Up2Us Sports Summer VISTA
Up2Us Sports is a national nonprofit dedicated to inspiring youth to achieve their potential by providing nonprofit member organizations capacity-building resources. Member organizations receive coaches, VISTAs, training, and technical assistance that help them better deliver and expand quality sports-based youth development programming in some of the nation’s most underserved communities. We believe sports can help fight childhood obesity, end academic failure, and reduce gang participation. During this health crisis, youth need coaches and mentors now more than ever. Summer VISTAs will play a powerful role in helping to rebuild communities and nonprofits to ensure youth are supported. As an Up2Us Sports Summer VISTA, you will work remotely at a member organization in various locations throughout the United States. You will build capacity of the organization by contributing to program restructuring and spearheading a community volunteer plan. You will also collaborate with the development and marketing team to identify and secure funding opportunities and create social media content. During the program, you will have the opportunity to gain skills through professional development, interact with numerous passionate individuals, and positively impact the sports-based youth development movement. If you are enthusiastic about sports and giving back to your community, this nine-week summer program is the right fit for you!
