Mission: To improve the lives of impoverished children around the world by using sports to inspire hope, improve health and spread the message of peace
Results: When we started our organization in 2011 we wanted to provide all children with the opportunity to be active in a fun and effective program. Over the summer we began training children in local parks to help develop their athletic skills. We understand the importance of building a strong relationship with community from a grassroots level, so this is why we have hosted many community events throughout the year. Whether its volunteering in our sports program or helping build a house with Habitat for Humanity, we are trying to give today's youth the opportunity to look beyond themselves and help out their community. We are looking for new partners and supporters to help us raise the funds that will allow to grow and help us reach more children in Los Angeles.

I was a volunteer for Children Sports at an event with the South Los Angeles Regional Center. It was a rewarding experience for me. We were able to engage children with various developmental disabilities in physical activities. The children were full energy and happy to be jumping rope, tossing a ball around, learning new fitness activities such as lunges, squats, bear crawls, etc. These children's disabilities ranged; some were more severe than others. There were a few kids who caught my attention. One was a young girl in a wheelchair and who had problems with her vision (I think she was partially blind) and grasping things with her hands. These challenges did not keep her from tossing a light ball around with another volunteer for quite some time. I think she may have gotten to work on her motor skills during that time..At the very least we got her smile. I look forward to more events like this, where we can impact the lives of more children. It was definitely rewarding.

I always want to work with an organization who is so passionate about sports and fitness. As an intern this past year, I have gained the knowledge in community outreach, marketing and sports performance which will help me in my career and in helping others. I had such a great experience working with Children Sports International , I can't wait to volunteer with them in the future again!

I believe in the mission of Children Sports International, which is to provide high level fitness programs to under-served communities. Children should be educated about the importance of exercising and leading healthy, well-rounded lives. It is also important to excite children about these fitness programs to cultivate a positive attitude towards healthy lifestyle changes. I believe Children Sports International has the potential to inspire change and create a healthier world for all children and I recommend everyone to volunteer and support its cause.

If you are looking for a organization to volunteer with, Children Sports International is amazing. I had the pleasure of implementing the mission and promoting the sports events for Children Sports International this past summer. I believe many children need to harbor a dream or an ambition in their minds even though they are in poverty-stricken families. Volunteering as an intern has helped me accomplish my goal and get the hands-on experience I was looking for in a non-profit. Thanks Danny for all your support!

I loved my volunteer work with Children Sports. They helped me reach out to children in need and inspiring change in Los Angeles. Sports teach essential life values while molding you into a well-rounded individual. Along with my love for athletics, I have a calling for helping children. Working with Children Sports as a volunteer coach has opened my eyes to the need as well as my strong willingness to help in any way I can. I look forward to working with them again in the future.

Children Sports International was a participant for the Healthy Hawthorn 5K. This was the second year they attended our event. It was great having them again. The children and adults enjoy their fitness challenge. We look for seeing them next year.

My children participated in World Health Day through Children Sports. They had a great time! The volunteers worked with them one-on-one. They learned new fitness activities that can be done with out fancy equipment. It was a great experience for the kids and for us.
