Physical/Environmental Requirements

  • Office: Working conditions are normal for an office environment.  Position may require occasional weekend and/or evening work.
  • More About the Academy: Children in many parts of Washington, D.C. face academic and social challenges that profoundly hinder their development and minimize their potential to succeed. Poverty, low academic achievement, poor health, obesity, exposure to anti-social influences and a lack of exposure to perspectives and influences outside of their immediate neighborhoods all combine to limit their opportunities. The challenges they face are complex, systemic and intertwined – but the effects of those challenges for children in neighborhoods east of the Anacostia River are stark:
  • Less than 30% of elementary school students achieve passable test scores in math and reading.
  • More than 40% of young people under the age of 18 in DC’s Ward’s 7 & 8 are obese and access to healthy eating options is severely limited for all children and families.
  • Nearly 60% of students drop out of high school before graduation, mostly before the tenth grade.
  • The Washington Nationals Youth Baseball Academy (Academy) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was developed to address these challenges head-on. The mission of the Academy is to use baseball and softball as vehicles to foster positive character development, academic achievement, and improved health among youth from at-risk communities in Washington, D.C.
