We’re not just inspiring a new generation —we’re helping kids with big dreams achieve big dreams. We leverage the power of sports to create positive social change and promote community service in East Contra Costa County. Our business is sports, but don’t let that fool you: we’re an ever-growing team at the forefront of an innovative educational model.
Volunteering for Level Up Sports gives you the chance to be part of something meaningful and ground-breaking. Volunteers who get involved find the energy so addicting that they stick around. That tells us we’re doing something right.
Through the consistent application of our values, our high-functioning coaches and teams take every opportunity to grow and improve. Our program is only as good as the people who nurture and inspire our kids every day.
What Level Up Offers You
We are a movement of current and aspiring high school athletes, coaches and professionals united in a common purpose: to help kids with big dream achieve big dreams. We wholeheartedly believe that at the intersection of talented people and positive intentions, amazing things can happen.
Our coaches have been teaching and mentoring youth in the Bay Area for close to 15 years. As the most social conscious sports program in the Bay Area, in our first year we’ve already built partnerships with local organizations including De La Salle Academy, The Food Bank, St. Raymond’s House, New Hope Academy, Shelter Inc, Mountain View Shelter and The Richmond’s Police Auxiliary League.
Level Up’s mission—and how that mission is carried out —is the backbone of our program. The Level Up program reflects our belief that sports can positively impact an individual as well as entire community including our comfort zone challenges to boost self confidence and our community service projects that teach empathy.
What Volunteer Opportunity Is Right For You?
Level Up offers a wide range of opportunities to match your skills, experience and goals. While most opportunities are available February through October, we look for volunteers year round with expertise in grant writing, marketing, and fundraising.
