Innovative, Whole-Child Youth Development Program
America SCORES is changing the game for low-income youth
Since 2001, SCORES has been delivering joyful learning opportunities to Bay Area children, giving students the support, skills, and confidence to meet new challenges and chart their own futures.
Our Mission: America SCORES empowers its “poet-athletes” to lead healthy lifestyles, be engaged and collaborative students and have the confidence and character to make a difference in the world.
America SCORES delivers free after school youth development programs that combines soccer, poetry and service learning. We have programs in San Francisco, Oakland, Daly City, San Rafael, Hayward, and Redwood City. And we are looking to expand!
Core Program Elements
The world's most fluid, beautiful game is at the heart of SCORES. Teamwork is at the core.
Unleash the voice! Creative expression, word play, and public speaking allow students to discover their individual, entirely distinct voices, all while building critical literacy skills and self confidence.
SCORES students learn how to make a positive, impactful contribution to their communities through a semester long service-learning curricula.
