Bold in Action: Coaching for Change

“Sports had a huge impact on my life, and it was the coaches that changed my life trajectory. So my thought was—let’s teach these kids to coach."

Meet 2012 Echoing Green Black Male Achievement Fellow Marquis Taylor, founder of Coaching for Change. Marquis saw an opportunity to give kids the freedom to discover their own leadership skills, and redirect their energies into something positive. Echoing Green, in turn, was able to give Marquis the coaching he needed to make this impact reality.
