Memphis Athletic Ministries will again partner with Up2Us, an accomplished, nationally-respected organization that supports youth development programs that use sports to improve the lives of kids across the country. We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the opportunity to hire six (6) new coaches beginning this Fall. The Grizzlies Foundation will be working with both organizations in order to play a role in providing more resources and guidance to youth in MAM’s programs.
Coach Across America (CAA) is a program launched by Up2Us to provide the support needed to train and host highly effective coaches in sports and youth development. CAA’s mission is to lead the United States in training and supporting expert coach-mentors in the nation’s most under-resourced communities to promote health and nutrition, educational success, civic engagement, and positive personal and social development in youth.
Now we need your help! MAM wants to secure six coaches by July 1st. In order to meet that goal, we need lots of help finding talented individuals who want to share their love of sports while helping kids learn and grow.
General Position Information: The Coach position will begin on August 1, 2014 and will end no later than July 31, 2015 (1 year commitment required). Training will include an all-expenses paid training retreat to Boston, MA in August. • Coaches will work with middle school students 20-25 hours/week, typically during after-school and evening hours. • Salary: $9.37/hour for 900 hours during the one-year employment period. • Receive a $1,000.00 Award upon completion of the CAA program.
