The Global Sport Initiative is focused on strengthening the capacity of local community organizations to deliver and sustain sport opportunities for local youth. The program is committed to:
- Building and sustaining a community of student-athletes engaged in local sport development work.
- Strengthening partnerships between the Swearer Center, the Brown Athletic Department, academic departments and local community organizations.
The Coordinator of community sport will work with the Director of Global Sport and community partners (the Providence Afterschool Alliance and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Providence) to ensure that weekly schedules are set and running smoothly. The coordinator will ensure that the sites have the equipment they need and that any changes to the site or schedule are communicated to the student volunteers, community partners and Director. The coordinator will also work with the Director on identifying, recruiting and promoting potential volunteers for a growing community sport initiative. A strong background and interest in sport is recommended. <>Note: Position payment and credit must be negotiated between the student and their institution.
