Director of Coaching Corps for Team-Up For Youth, Oakland
Monica is dedicated to improving the lives of Bay Area children through sports. As Director of Coaching Corps for Team-Up For Youth, Monica recruits and trains college students to serve as volunteer coaches in afterschool programs in low-income communities where organized sports programs barely exist, especially for girls. Since 2005, the Coaching Corps program has trained and placed more than 850 college students who, to-date, have served more than 8,000 low-income youth. Under Monica’s leadership, Team-Up for Youth was recently awarded a VISTA grant from the Corporation of National and Community Service.
