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 20 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 20 after-school programs running!
