Believing in Our Mission


Phil Ginsburg

General Manager, San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department


An investment in America SCORES is an investment in the future of San Francisco’s children. That’s why I support SCORES and will always play on their team.


Shamann Walton

President, Board of Education, SFUSD


I have seen the work of America SCORES firsthand for many years. There is a reason why schools stick with America SCORES and why people across our school district rave about them. There is no other program that is able to combine poetry, soccer, and service-learning for an optimal learning and physical experience for students.


Mark Sanchez

Commissioner, Board of Education, SFUSD (and former Principal at Cleveland)


America SCORES completely changed the landscape and the culture of Cleveland Elementary School. They turned our asphalt into a turf field. But more than that, SCORES has given hundreds of students a voice, self‐confidence, and a positive outlet for sports.


Jim Illig 

Kaiser Permanente, Community Benefit Manager, Core Bay Area


Kaiser Permanente provides grant funding to America SCORES because it reaches a very high bar. America SCORES measures its impact, child‐by‐child, and has the data to prove its results.


Hon. Jared Huffman

California 2nd District US Congress


From the academic impact SCORES has on our students by integrating literacy and poetry, to the healthy lifestyle promoted by combining learning with soccer, SCORES is keeping our students engaged, healthy, and on a path to success in all aspects of their lives.
