Sarah Cooney serves as a Program Assistant for YC.  She is responsible for facilitating adapted sports and recreational activities, collaborating with program staff in the planning and implementation of programs, and assisting with transportation.

Sarah has a rich history with Youth Challenge, starting as a program volunteer during her years at Magnificat High School.  She’s worked for close to 20 years in various full-time roles, most recently as the Director of Volunteer & Outreach Services.  In that position, she was responsible for the oversight and enrichment of YC’s volunteer team and worked to recruit, train, partner, supervise, and recognize the compassionate and dedicated team who serve as the heart and soul of Youth Challenge.  Sarah stepped down from that role to be a stay-at-(mostly)-home mom to her son, Liam (who will hopefully volunteer at YC when he turns 12!)

Sarah is an ’05 graduate of the University of Notre Dame and received her B.A. in English and Anthropology.  She lives in Avon with her husband, Kevin.
