Inclusive Therapeutic Sports Program with Youth Jobs

Create an inclusive therapeutic sports program for youth to aid with health as well as social skills development. Embed therapeutic models and techniques into this program and train mentors/coaches on said models and give them clinical supervision. Within this therapeutic sports program, jobs for youth can be created based upon their individual goals (refereeing, running the scoreboard, managing the league, assistant coaching, maintaining league statistics,field maintenance, ordering uniforms, etc.). This program would be an incredible consistent support as youth transition from different services and life situations. An example of an organization doing this type of work is www.docwayne.org.
