Audenreid High visits Vincera Institute to Explore Sports Medicine Careers

16 tenth grade students in the medical track at Audenreid High, with their teacher, Jorja Darby, got to step into the shoes of medical professionals at Vincera Institute through Vincera Foundation’s Jocks2Docs program.  Our Jocks2Doc program aims to create opportunity for youth to experience the multifaceted field of sports medicine, promoting awareness of the many career pathways within the field. Audenreid first participated in Jocks2Docs when Vincera visited the high school to teach an interactive class about sports injuries. Students in the class learned how to determine and prepare a SOAP (subjective, objective, assessment, and  plan) note when examining patients as well as how to share it with those professionals along a patient’s care path.

Harnessing the Power of Sport – Up2Us at Funders’ Conversation

Positive Youth Development Focused on Training the Coach

Vincera Foundation, the Horner Foundation and Philanthropy Network partnered to host the third Sports-Based Youth Development Conversation. We welcomed special guest Paul Caccamo, President and Founder of Up2Us, a nationwide leader in sports-based youth development. Paul came armed with staff and trained coaches to demonstrate the impact their Coaches Across America program has had in training and professionalizing the role of coaching in sports-based youth development across the country.

Coach Across America (CAA) places and trains the nation’s best and brightest role models to bring sports-based youth development to our most underserved communities. Their coaches inspire children to be leaders and contributing members of their communities. CAA coaches understand that every program session, practice or game is a chance to positively impact a child’s future.

Their lively discussion and demonstration created great buzz and interest in bringing their program to Philadelphia.
