Family of Friends
One of our goals here in the office of Youth Sports & Community Programs is to succeed in building internal community on campus at Notre Dame, while reaching out and building community off campus. Our success in everything from operating Summer Sports Camps to running the Irish Experience Programs to the Playing for Peace initiative depends on the support and collaboration from a growing family of friends.
Student Athlete Welfare & Development: The office of Student Athlete Welfare & Development plays a key role in working with us on connecting our varsity student-athletes to community service through the Irish Experience Programs and Playing for Peace initiative.
RecSports: One of our strongest and most important partnerships exists in the relationship we have with the RecSports office here on campus. RecSports works with us help market and organize our events and assists us with facility and field availability.
The Center for Social Concerns: The Center for Social Concerns serves as an incredible resource as our office works to advance the common good. They have a full staff of experts that help us work towards the University mission that seeks to promote learning as service to justice.
The Office of University Relations: This office helps us understand our role in the bigger picture of all that Notre Dame is doing in the community and the world. They work with us to help us synergize our efforts with other offices and departments on campus.
The Robinson Community Learning Center (RCLC): The RCLC serves as a great partner in helping us reach the community. They run extensive portfolio of community development programs and work with us to engage children in our Irish Experience Programs.
Martin Luther King Recreation Center: The MLK Rec Center is one of our strongest partners in the local communty. We work closely with their staff in running our Irish Experience League and Playing for Peace Programs.
American Red Cross Refugee Services (St. Joseph County): The Red Cross has been an integral partner in our Playing for Peace International Soccer Festival activities. Through this friendship we are able to welcome the local refugee and immigrant communities to campus for Playing for Peace activities.
Catholic Relief Services (CRS): CRS is a strategic University partner and works to inform all the advocacy efforts we partake in through the Playing for Peace initiative.
