[From Introduction] This research will investigate the important best practice elements regarding nonprofit organizations that focus specifically on aiding underserved youth through sports programs in the United States and Latin America, using an established, tested rubric used by CharityNavigator.com. My research questions are: 1. How transparent and accountable are these nonprofit youth based organizations? 2. Do the three organizations follow modern successful nonprofit best practices as laid out within literature on the topic? In order to counterbalance the form- and website design focused, analytical rubric of Charity Navigator, the research also focuses on sub-questions within the topics of consumers, risk management, and fiscal integrity. These questions aim to incorporate the human element: the children and families that are supposed to be benefitting from the programs each nonprofit aims to provide.
