Young Quakers Community Athletics Coaches & UACS Sports Instructors
Young Quakers Community Athletics (YQCA) is a partnership between the University of Pennsylvania’s Netter Center for Community Partnerships and Penn Athletics. YQCA creates mutually beneficial partnerships between select Penn intercollegiate athletic teams and West Philadelphia public schools.
Penn’s varsity athletes engage with West Philadelphia K-8 students, mentoring the children on the field and off. YQCA provides staff, coaches, uniforms, sports equipment, bus transportation, and access to the University’s world-class playing fields at no cost to the schools or their students. Program participants also benefit from the Netter Center’s comprehensive University-Assisted Community Schools (UACS) programming, which brings additional academic, human, and material resources from Penn to their schools during the school day, after school, and in the summer.
