Why we need these programs
- Research shows that quality after-school programs are essential to keeping our children safe and improving their educational attainment.
- Many of our children are at risk for obesity and don't have access to safe places to play or access to positive, supportive, and encouraging sports programs.
- Our children have to navigate and overcome high rates of violence, teen parenthood, and incarceration. They need the support of coach/mentors to guide them and they need a supportive, positive organization to belong to.
- Most of the children in our community can't join programs that run in the evenings and weekends because they lack transportation or can't afford the cost.
Our programs make a difference!
We partner with schools, recreation centers, and other non-profits to run Soccer For Success programs at 15 different locations in our community and are in the process of adding more.
We use the nationally recognized Soccer For Success curriculum that incorporates health/nutrition education, anti-violence components, and mentorship along with fun soccer activities designed to build skills and teamwork.
We eliminate barriers to participation by bringing our quality coach-mentors to the children so we can reach every child regardless of their home circumstances.
We need your help to keep our 15 after-school programs running!
