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.

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 drawn to volunteering for Children Sports because they use of sports to influence children and youth who live in disadvantaged areas. Sports have always been a pivotal part of my life and extremely influential in teaching me life skills such as teamwork, responsibility, and perseverance, while also giving something physically constructive to do. I cannot remember a time in my life where I did not play a sport and my team experiences have been some of the most positive in my life. I think getting children involved in their sports programs as a positive outlet can be a life changing experience.

Children Sports International is such an amazing organization since it deals with using sports and physical activity to enhance the lives of the young population. Coming from a poor community, I personally know how using these tools can really improve the lives of individuals. Learning this firsthand, I would like to use what I know to help others.

Volunteering for Children Sports has been a great experience this past year. I grew up playing sports and that competitive nature lead me to have the drive and determination that I have today in my career. Working with kids is an amazing experience. It always makes my day when I am out there coaching and helping a young kid learn something new that will inspire him to keep at it and strive to be the best that they can be.

What interested me most about this organization is the fact that I will be able to work and surround myself with people who love sports and want to teach the values one can get through sports to young underprivileged children. It combines two things I enjoy most; being around children and my passion for sports and I am looking forward to volunteering again soon.

I’ve always been interested in working with at-risk youth. I feel that, aside from children, the teenage population is the one most vulnerable to adverse outcomes in the community. As a volunteer coach for Children Sports I have been involved making changes in the lives of youth and becoming a positive role-model for children in my community.
