C2G Coaches

C2G Coaches are men who know the importance of being a positive male figure for young boys. The C2G Coach is genuinely motivated to be the guide and support for young middle school boys as they are making the journey to high school. C2G Coaches are not perfect men, but they are men who are committed to being present and willing to "show up" for our boys.

Join the cadre of GREAT Coaches ready to make a difference in the lives of our boys. No matter who you are, if you are an African-American/Black male, a young man needs your support and presence in their lives. Become a part of the solution for our future generation.
