Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SNAP Sports programs seek to provide the opportunity for regular, rigorous physical activity, disciplined team behavior and demonstrable moments of accomplishment. The program welcomes all athletes with disabilities, wishing to expand their knowledge and skills of a team sport through the support of experienced coaches and skilled peers. We are dedicated to using sports-based activities to teach valuable life lessons, while engaging partcipants in regular exercise. Expansion of this programming would include a sports-based facility, for athletes to train and develop strategies for successful independent living.

To better serve the special needs population, SNAP Sports envisions an expansion which will allow a greater reach and impact on ours, and other communities. The long-range outlook would include the development a national headquarters of operation for SNAP Sports. From that single hub of operations, we will develop new and exciting partnerships that will drive national and global recognition for our programming. That same hub would act as a transportation center for athletes with special needs, many of which do not drive, providing buses to and from training and competitions. This training center will provide more opportunities for local school-based integration and participant volunteerism in its day-to-day operations. Ultimately SNAP Sports, through a variety of sports-based activities, is seeking to develop highly-valued members of the community, engaged in a positive way, regardless of their individual disability.

During our initial years we have become somewhat proficient developing athletes with our philosophy, and our donors have connected with that. In our very brief history, we have also been successful in attracting individual and corporate donors who have seen the value in our work and appreciate the returns they see from their generosity. As we continue to grow, the confluence of these two will allow us to expand our reach to identify partners who share our mission. We firmly believe that if there is a need, we will work to fill it. With the support of our partners and the continued success of our participants, our capabilities are boundless.

Data
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
