Sample cover letter for Full Time position at ADG

POSITION:

Teacher/Coach

I am a first year student at Smith College pleased to submit my application for a teacher/coach position with the

2016 REAL Kids/Harlem RBI summer program which I saw in our career center internship database. With strong

interests in youth development and team sports, I am drawn to this position as an opportunity to make a positive

difference in the lives of inner city youth.

I have extensive experience working with children in athletic and arts settings. As Assistant Coach of the Marion

County Youth Softball League, I designed non-competitive beginner practices that motivated each player to strive

for her personal best. As the girls’ skill level, self-esteem, and teamwork grew, several reported having greater

success in school. Previously, as Arts Leader for Fine Arts for Kids in Miami, I taught arts and crafts to Hispanic

youth and initiated cost-free activities that enriched their appreciation of art. As public schools are increasingly

cutting funding for arts and sports programs, I am eager to help close the gap for these children however I can.

As a teacher/coach with REAL Kids/Harlem RBI I hope to share with my students the important lessons about

teamwork, leadership, and motivation I’ve learned from softball. I owe my academic success in large part to the

committed coaches I had since joining my first softball team at age six. I am excited by the prospect of inspiring

your students to play, learn, and grow this summer.

I am available at your convenience for an in-person or phone interview, and I look forward to hearing from you

soon.
