Company Description

What’s Volo Kids?

Volo City Kids provides free organized sports for the kids of Baltimore, Denver, New York, San Francisco and Washington, DC. Our programs remove barriers to athletic participation such as gender, skill, and financial resources while bringing different communities together.

 We recruit young professionals from the local sports leagues to volunteer with our youth sports programs as coaches and positive role models who encourage the kids to become healthy, physically active and positively involved in our community.

Volo is a movement—for people and by people who want to connect more meaningfully with each other. We are a grassroots uprising, helping others actually see who they’re connecting with, and share experiences over the length of a season.

If you have a desire to make a difference through community and sports, Volo could be your next and final career destination. Come fly with us.
