WE LEAD. WE INVENT. WE DELIVER.
WE USE THE POWER OF SPORT TO MOVE THE WORLD.
At NIKE, Inc., we see a world where everybody is an athlete—united in the joy of movement. Driven by our passion for sport and our instinct for innovation, we aim to elevate human potential.
Whether our job is designing the ultimate sneaker or coding a revolutionary app, we’re united by the same mission: to bring inspiration and innovation to every athlete in the world. That means you.
At Nike, we believe that sport makes a better you. And it has the power to change the world — beginning with kids.
But it’s alarming to see that kids are moving less and less, with only one in five kids getting the daily requirement of physical activity, and girls dropping out of sport at two times the rate of boys. Yet we know that when kids play and are active, they do better in life.
Sport Changes Everything, we see this through our Nike Community Ambassadors (NCAs) – community heroes who inspire kids to play and stay in the game.
Because, as Bill Bowerman—Nike’s co-founder and legendary coach—once said, “If you have a body, you are an athlete.”
Every day, we are demanding a better future for ourselves, our athletes, and our communities. We believe that diversity fosters creativity and accelerates innovation. We believe in protecting a planet where all athletes can thrive. And we believe every kid, everywhere, should have access to sport.
NCAs are retail employees who are trained to serve as volunteer coaches, bringing the fun and fundamentals of sport and play to kids in their communities. They help kids fall in love with sport.
After all, kids can’t do it alone. We know coaches can make or break the experience for kids, and these community heroes remind us we can all play a role.
A few of our NCAs from LA, Chicago and NY share their thoughts in the videos below (heads up: these may give you goosebumps). Then, read on to find out how you can help get kids moving too:
