Marketing and Communications Coordinator

ORGANIZATION OVERVIEW
Team IMPACT is a national nonprofit that connects children facing serious or chronic illnesses with college athletic teams, forming lifelong bonds and life-changing outcomes.  Through Team IMPACT, a child battling illness becomes an official (non-playing) member of a college athletic team, attending practices, games, team dinners and more.  After two years with the team, the child graduates from the program with demonstrated improvements in their optimism, confidence and sense of belonging.  Parents and siblings gain a community of support and a distraction from medical realities, and student athletes gain invaluable inspiration and perspective that will be carried with them long after graduation.

Since 2011, Team IMPACT has matched 1,700 children with nearly 600 colleges and universities in 48 states, positively impacting more than 50,000 student athletes.
