Sports-Focused Youth Development Programs

New York City is home to scores of sports-focused Youth Development Programs/non-profits. Many of these organizations work to help disadvantaged youth enjoy the benefits of playing organized sports. We applaud the efforts of these organizations and encourage members of our community to learn about the work they do and, hopefully, to get involved. To show our support New York Sports Connection will donate 10% of our advertising revenue each quarter to one of these non-profits.

If you know of or are an executive at a non-profit that is not listed here contact us and we will be happy to add it to our listings.
