Up2Us is a nationwide leader in sports-based youth development. It harnesses the power of sports to reduce youth violence, promote health, and inspire academic success. Up2Us supports youth sports by hiring and training coaches who can inspire their success on and off the field. One of its programs, Coach Across America, is based on the premise that highly trained coaches can be the most transformative adults in the lives of young people. As a member organization, MYF is poised to tap the power of Up2Us to keep highly trained coaches available for our participants.
