What is Operation coach?

An innovative extension to the Up2Us Coach 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.
