Susan Crown Exchange
The Susan Crown Exchange (SCE) works to prepare youth to thrive in a rapidly changing, highly connected world. SCE primarily supports organizations that operate in out-of-school time, prioritizing initiatives that promote social and emotional learning (SEL), explore the relationships between technology and society, and build critical skills through youth sports. What unites all of SCE’s partners is their commitment to creating opportunities for young people.
As part of the Million Coaches Challenge, SCE is funding a cohort of organizations to bring critical training to coaches across the country.

Aspen Institute Project Play
Launched in 2013 by the Aspen Institute Sports & Society Program, this initiative develops, applies and shares knowledge that helps build healthy communities through sports. They produce reports that take measure of the state of play at the national, regional and city levels, with exclusive data and insights. They create frameworks and tools that stakeholders can use to grow access to quality sport. Then each fall, they pump new ideas into the bloodstream and push the movement forward at the Project Play Summit, the nation’s premier annual gathering of leaders at the intersection of youth, sport and health.
As part of the Million Coaches Challenge, Aspen Institute Project Play is committed to sharing resources that improve the quality of coach training and change the conversation about what it means to be a good coach.
Visit their website to find resources for actors across the sector who want to drive progress in youth sports.
