Summer of Impact - Volunteers

Welcome to KEEN Chicago’s Summer of IMPACT!
Meet KEEN Volunteer Coco Bassi!

Coco got involved as a volunteer for KEEN in December 2016 and later joined the Associate Board of Directors in June of 2017. Her passion for working with children with disabilities began back in high school when she helped create a space, like KEEN, for kids with disabilities to participate in games and events. Throughout her time volunteering she has forged relationships with athletes, other volunteers and parents. She finds the most joy when athletes are smiling, participating in the session and enjoying the comradery in the gym! KEEN Chicago has developed into a large passion in her life, and she is dedicated to spreading word about KEEN’s mission and expanding the program.

KEEN’s method of one-on-one engagement between athletes and volunteer coaches provides a unique opportunity for both individuals to learn, grow and be fulfilled. Any donation, no matter how small, will contribute to our goal of raising $3,000 in 10 days to provide new equipment for the 150 athletes participating in our programs here in Chicago.
