New York City, we need your help!
Play With Purpose
We play so kids can play for free! It’s what sets us apart. Where else do you have the opportunity to play a game with your friends, meet new people, while making a positive change in your community?
Together we make a difference, but there is more we can do! The need for free quality leagues for New York City’s youth grows more and more every day. The best part is, we make it easy for you to donate! In addition to the traditional methods, you can donate through Venmo: @volocity-kids, or online at kidsweek.volocityfoundation.org
Did you know that 70% of kids quit sports due to high costs, excessively competitive environments, and the pressure to specialize too early? Your donation will go towards equipment, fields, curriculum development, referees, team t-shirts, and healthy meals for every Volo Kid! Whether you donate time, skill, or money, know that you are actively making a difference. You are changing lives and improving your community

WE PLAY SO KIDS CAN PLAY FOR FREE
What is the Volo City Kids Foundation?
The Volo City Kids Foundation provides free youth sports programming to kids ages 6-12 across the nation. We remove barriers to entry by making our services free of cost to the kids and families we serve. In addition to the weekly practice and game coaching, we provide postgame meals that give players and parents the opportunity to meet others within the community as well as connect with our volunteers. The best part? We make it easy to connect you with your community – as simple as Click. Play. Enjoy.
Since our inception in 2015, we have engaged over 700 kids and have impacted the lives of over 3,000 kids all over the United States!
Not only do our volunteers get to play and teach kids a sport for an afternoon, but they also get to play in any Volo City league for free. Yes, you read that right- FREE leagues for volunteers! Can’t make it to a league? There are SO many other ways to get involved! Everything from donating to participating in Kids Week events supports the Volo City Kids Foundation. For more information on what you can do, please see your league’s host, check out www.volocityfoundation.org, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Participate in Kids Week Events
We understand that life can get crazy. You want to get involved and coach, but don’t have the time and low on funds? Once a season we dedicate an entire week to raising funds and awareness of the Volo City Kids Foundation. All you have to do to is play in your weekly league – we have events going on all over the city! Keep checking back as we update our festivities for Kids Week!
It costs us $125 to provide free sports programming to 1 child for an entire 6 week season- can you help us get closer to that goal by donating HERE today – don’t forget to donate to the NYC page so it count’s towards our fundraising goal!
