Position Title: AmeriCorps Up2Us Coach

Name of Supervisor: Chineze Nwagbo

City/State: Baltimore, MD

Type of Position: Part-Time

Term Length: 900 Hours Over 1 Year

 

The Up2Us Sports AmeriCorps VISTA program aims to build the capacity of Up2Us Sports member organizations who run high-quality sports-based youth development programming in under-served communities. We are looking for an AmeriCorps Up2Us Coach to join us in our grassroots peacebuilding and youth development through basketball work in Baltimore. As an AmeriCorps Up2Us Coach at PeacePlayers Baltimore, you will help build out sports-based community programming for elementary, middle, and high school youth. You will also become a part of a global community of people who are passionate about the power of sports to unite communities all over the world. 

 

ORGANIZATION DESCRIPTION: 

PeacePlayers launched in 2001 with the belief that if youth could learn to play together, they could learn to live together. Our mission is to unite communities in conflict through sports; particularly the game of basketball. Nearly 20 years later, we operate five programs globally in Cyprus, South Africa, Northern Ireland, the Middle East and the United States. In 2017, PeacePlayers partnered with Nike to launch programming in the U.S. where we currently operate in Baltimore, MD; Brooklyn, NY; Chicago, IL; Detroit, MI; and Los Angeles, CA.

 

In the U.S., historical divides driven by who you are (race/cultural background) and where you are from (geography) have created an inequitable society. Baltimore has struggled to provide a sustainable path to success for its residents for decades. The drug epidemic coupled with other negative influences have contributed to disengaged communities on the East and West side of Baltimore. In addition, economic development often happens around but not within underserved communities contributing to limited quality resources for many youth and their families to reach their highest potential.

 

Through participation in PeacePlayers programs, youth develop  the skills, attitudes and behaviors that enhance their ability to reduce conflict and find their voice as leaders. 

 

As an AmeriCorps Up2Us Coach at PeacePlayers Baltimore, you will support our efforts to run sports-based community programming in Baltimore by: 

 

PROGRAMS:

  • Supporting the Peace League (elementary/middle school age) and Leadership Development Program (high school age) through coaching and curriculum development
  • Plan and assist in facilitating workshops & events
  • Support with recruiting new PeacePlayers participants

 

MONITOR & EVALUATION  

  • Work with Monitor and Evaluation Specialist to develop systems to ensure effective and efficient data capture
  • Ensure weekly attendance data is captured by coaches and entered into PeacePlayers Baltimore attendance database 
  • Support in PeacePlayers annual survey of Peace League and LDP youth 

 

QUALIFICATIONS

 

  • Passion for the PeacePlayers mission 
  • Demonstrated passion for using sport as a tool for social change
  • Knowledge of and/or experience in sport-based youth development philosophy

ORGANIZATIONAL OVERVIEW 

Established in 2001, PeacePlayers is a peacebuilding nonprofit organization that uses sport as a vehicle to unite, educate and inspire young people living in divided communities. Based on the premise that “children who play together can learn to live together,” PeacePlayers has become a worldwide leader in the use of sport to build a more peaceful world, reaching more than 75,000 youth in 15 countries. 

By offering equitable basketball programming, peace education, leadership development, and professional training, PeacePlayers challenges the status quo of hatred and fear that grips societies in conflict – making cross-community cooperation desirable and giving young people practical skills to deal with conflict and grow into advocates for peace in their communities. The organization operates year-round programs in the Middle East, South Africa, Northern Ireland, and Cyprus, internationally. Domestically programming is in five major US cities Baltimore, Brooklyn, Detroit, Chicago, and Los Angeles. 

 

SUMMARY OF THE POSITION 

PeacePlayers believes that basketball has the power to be a catalyst for change. We achieve this by using the game of basketball to bridge divides, create equitable opportunities, and develop youth leaders. 

The aftermath of redlining is still felt in communities of color in the city of Baltimore today. Studies show that Baltimore has the lowest rate of mobility out of poverty in the country, a statistic tied directly to education as much as it is economic opportunity. Neighborhoods that are less than 50 percent African American receive nearly four times the investment of neighborhoods that are over 85 percent African American. Low-poverty neighborhoods receive one and a half times the investment of high-poverty neighborhoods. 

PeacePlayers engages youth within these communities in different quadrants of the city by providing access to sports-based after-school programming led by committed and effective local coaches grounded in leadership development and peace education. Youth develop the skills, attitudes, and behaviors that enhance their ability to reduce conflict in positive ways and emerge from the program as leaders uniting the different quadrants of Baltimore. Ultimately, our goal is to create youth-led strategies to bridge societal divides and be the catalyst for institutional and structural change within the city.

Our programming consists of: 

 

Summer Camp 

PeacePlayers offers an 8-week basketball summer camp for youth ages 10-18. Summer programming is a combination of basketball skills development and experiential learning activities. Summer camp serves as an added enrichment program for youth that allows them to experience the best of our basketball and leadership programming 

 

Peace League 

Peace League is an after-school leadership through sports program serving youth ages 8-13. Peace League creates a safe space for youth to have fun and build friendships with peers across community divides, as well as opportunities to access positive, caring role models in their coaches. Peace League is offered in the Fall (September through December) and Spring (February through June). Sessions, which take place 1-2 times a week, include a combination of leadership workshops and basketball drills. Cities also host Twinning events that bring together youth in the Peace League program. 

 

Leadership Development 

The Leadership Development Program is a community-based program that serves youth ages 14-18 with the goal of equipping them to be leaders in their communities. Leadership Development Program (LDP) participants walk through a more in-depth PeacePlayers’ peace education curriculum. The four pillars of the LDP are basketball skill development, personal development, experiential learning, and community service. LDP provides opportunities to mentor younger participants, access caring adult role models, and resources to support their personal development and academic goals. 

We are looking for two passionate Youth Development Basketball Coaches to support our programming needs as we return to play this 2021 -2022 academic school year. As a PeacePlayers coach, you will help create fun, on-the-court experiences for Baltimore youth. You will also join a global community of coaches who are passionate about the power of sport to break down barriers and unite communities all over the world.
