Latest Issue Brief

The Role of the Coach

Participation in organized activities outside of school can help youth: learn how to set and meet goals; gain leadership skills; improve communication with peers and adults; and achieve better educational outcomes. Coaches are adults who help groups of youth develop skills—they can be found in sports teams, clubs and organizations, as well as dance, art, music and language lessons. Youth are most likely to realize positive outcomes when coaches focus on positive youth development, internal motivation, skill development, and providing encouraging feedback. Read IYI’s newest Issue Brief, “Building Skills in Youth: The Role of the Coach” for more information on best practices when coaching youth.
