In January 2018, we teamed up with Nike to launch Sport for Good New York City, a collective impact initiative committed to improving the lives of under-served youth in New York City’s five boroughs through the power of sport. Through cross-sector collaboration at the local level, Sport for Good New York City is ensuring that more children and youth have access to high-quality, youth-centered sports programs. Since this launch, Sport for Good NYC has:
- Formed a robust and diverse membership community of 62 organizations representing 31 different sports and serving over 177,000 young people across the city
- Provided $2M in grants impacting the lives of over 40,000 young people
- Trained 600+ local coaches in sports-based youth development and positive youth development best practices
- Launched a Nike Made to Play Community of Practice in 2022, a three-year, $1M program that empowers organizations across South Bronx and Central Brooklyn to create access to sport and safe spaces for girls of color and women coaches of color.
