Up2US Sports Evaluation Grad Student Program

July 1, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Up2Us Sports is a national nonprofit committed to leveraging the power of sports

and physical activity as a tool to enhance health outcomes and social-emotional

learning of youth across the country. Utilizing our evidence-based and traumainformed

training model, Up2Us Sports provides coaches with the skill set to be

transformative adults in the lives of youth in under-resourced communities. We

invest in the professional development of coaches and provide ongoing resources

to ensure coaches are high-quality mentors who intentionally bridge the gap

between life and sport.

Up2Us Sports is looking for a graduate student to support monitoring and

evaluation data collection of the Coach Across America (CAA) program in Miami.

The goal of the evaluation is to gain information on the ability of CAA programs to

influence the physical fitness, internal attributes, and nutrition of youth participants.

The student will gain exposure to CAA sports-based youth development

programming and data collection tools and methods specific to sports-based youth


Responsibilities and Activities

The student will be involved in many elements of the coordination and execution of

this outcome evaluation to measure the extent to which the Up2Us Sports program

contributes to improved health and socio-emotional learning of youth. The student

will work closely with the national evaluation team and local Miami team on tasks


? Spend 5-10 hours per week in the office (hours are flexible based on

student’s schedule)

? Some quantitative data collection support (surveys and fitness tests) with

youth at host organizations in coordination with Miami staff

? Management and tracking of youth survey and fitness test data collected

on hundreds of youth working with CAA coaches

? Data coding and entry

? Coordinating with Miami and national staff to communicate what data has

been received and what data requires further follow-up
