A National Association for Sports Based Youth Development Organizations 

A Resource Helping Nonprofits' Increase Capacity to Help Children in Underserved Communities 

With youth sports organizations temporarily closed down due to COVID-19, the Youth Sports Collaborative Network (YSCN) has created the public COVID-19 Youth Sports Resource Center. This Resource Center provides content and links on virtual youth engagement activities being practiced by youth sports nonprofits, nonprofit operations/funding solutions, and government resources available to nonprofits and their program's children in response to COVID-19.

The Resource Center will be updated regularly. To receive notices of these updates, you can subscribe to our free e-newsletter YSCN Update. We also welcome new solutions for the Resource Center. Simply send them along to [email protected],

YSCN is a national member association for nonprofit sports-based youth development organizations (SBYD) providing or supporting programs for children living in underserved communities. SBYD programs are often after school programs that use a particular sport or fitness activity to facilitate positive learning and life skill development in youth. Benefits to members include:

Learning about Cost-Saving Services, Grant Opportunities and the latest News and Research in Nonprofit Management and Youth Development,

Connecting organizations via YSCN Update E-newsletter, Personal Introductions, Local in-person and online meetings, and Online Tools that enable Ongoing Collaboration and Knowledge Sharing, and

Advocating the Benefits of SBYD Programs to Increase Resources and Funding from Foundations, Government, Businesses, and the Public.
