CHI: Volunteer Experience with KEEN @ Loyola Park District


Members joined us for an impactful IVY Volunteer Experience as we partnered with KEEN Chicago to provide one-to-one sports and recreational opportunities for children and young adults with developmental and physical disabilities. We coached KEEN’s youngest athletes (ages 5 to 12) and then teens (ages 13 to 20+) in two back-to-back sessions to help them burn energy and foster the self-esteem needed to grow their talents in a non-competitive setting. Throughout the different activities, we used a variety of sports equipment, including basketballs, hula hoops, soccer balls, and more. There was a 20-minute break in between the sports sessions where volunteers and athletes had the option to partake in a fun Art Session!
