What is Operation coach?
An innovative extension to the Coach Across America program that provides veterans the opportunity to transition into a career in sports and youth development while giving back to their community as a coach for at-risk youth.
Operation Coach provides our nation’s veterans with an opportunity to gain employment while serving as everyday heroes to at-risk youth.
Veterans are employed at organizations such as nonprofits, military installation programs, schools, parks and recreation departments, and community centers.
