Chattanooga Sports Ministries (CSM) is a local nonprofit that seeks to transform underprivileged youth through athletic engagement. Though the ministry has been active since 2005, Hannah Griggs came to Co.Starters in 2015 to expand an assistant coach program. Youth from the communities CSM works with are hired as assistant coaches. From this they receive valuable work experience, earn an income, and gain life skills to ensure their future success. The program also connects young people to college tours, ACT preparation, leadership training, financial literacy courses, and savings accounts to plan for the future.
