A New Association for Sports Based Youth Development Organizations 

Increasing Nonprofits' Capacity to Help Children in Underserved Communities 

The Youth Sports Collaborative Network (YSCN) is a national member association for the community of hundreds of 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.

YSCN helps increase member success through:

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, 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.

Why Join?

The Youth Sports Collaborative is the only national youth sports association that exclusively advocates for the needs and interests of organizations that provide or support sports-based youth development.

The annual fee for membership supports the entire organization – executive director/CEO, program and operational staff, coaches, and board members.
