Afterschool Partnership Spotlighted

Video: About WRAP (Winners Reaching Amazing Potential)

Oakland-based nonprofit Coaching Corps, which has partnered with more than 700 afterschool programs nationally to give children in low-income communities the sport mentors they need, has bestowed its Partner of the Month honor upon the Long Beach Unified School District’s WRAP afterschool program. 

Since 2012, Coaching Corps has provided more than 210,000 youth with the opportunity to play sports under the guidance of a caring, well-trained coach. Informed by the latest research on youth character development, Coaching Corps trains coaches to foster persistence, optimism, self-regulation, and empathy in kids, providing coaches with the ongoing support they need to ensure girls and boys in under-resourced communities learn skills that last lifetimes.
