Company Description

What is Volo and Volo Kids Foundation?

Volo Kids Foundation provides free organized sports programs to kids in Baltimore, Boston, Denver, New York, San Diego, 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 Volo adult 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 Kids Foundation could be your next and final career destination. Come fly with us.
