Leveling the Playing Field (LPF) is a nonprofit organization that gives underprivileged children the opportunity to enjoy the mental and physical benefits of youth sports participation. LPF does this through the collection of used/excess sports equipment from schools, manufacturers, individual families, and others. After being inventoried and sorted at the LPF warehouse, the equipment is then redistributed to a school, sports league, or other organization serving a low-income community and placed into the hands of a child who cannot afford their own equipment.
Leveling the Playing Field accepts interns year round to help with numerous tasks and responsibilities around the business. Interns will have the opportunity to gain experience with volunteer coordination, community outreach, database operations and logistics management. Throughout the year, we train and provide ongoing support to interns as they work in a particular area, which is chosen according to specific interests and talents.
