Financial Grants Manager

Founded in 2010, Up2Us Sports is a national nonprofit organization that is focused on the power of coaches to transform the lives of our nation’s most vulnerable youth, and the communities they live in, through sports.  Up2Us Sports believes that the root cause of the challenges facing our nation’s youth, especially those living in underserved communities, is the absence of healthy relationships and role models who can inspire and guide them to make better decisions that lead to their lifelong success.  Up2Us Sports is based on a simple premise:  That highly trained coaches can be among the most transformative adults in young people’s lives and inspire their success on the field, in the classroom, and in life.
