DC SCORES tackles the many very real impacts of poverty on the life a child, including a lack of extracurricular enrichment, adult mentors and fitness opportunities. DC SCORES' school-based, team-based, whole child programming - delivered through free after-school programs and summer camps facilitated by trained youth development professionals - intentionally integrates soccer, poetry, and service-learning to help low-income 3rd-8th graders throughout the District build physical fitness, find their voice, improve their literacy, increase school engagement, and strengthen ties to their community.

The waiting list for our school-based program is over 20 schools deep, so this Do More 24, May 17-18, we are asking you to help provide the opportunity for a kid in Washington, DC to join a team, and benefit from all DC SCORES has to offer.

DC SCORES has been helping children for over 23 years, and in the past six weeks we've seen amazing evidence of where a soccer team can take a child. For example:

In late March over 150 high school alumni shined brilliantly during our annual alumni tournament.
Uniyah, age 10, of Miner Elementary School traveled to Switzerland in April as the USA representative of the Eleven Campaign, a non-profit documentary bringing together 11 soccer-playing children from across the world.
A group of DC SCORES alumni girls are in Moscow, Russia, as the only team representing America in the Street Child World Cup - playing soccer and advocating about the issue of youth homelessness.

These incredible opportunities would not be possible if DC SCORES did not equip kids beginning as early as age 6 with the means to play soccer and be on a team - with shoulder to shins uniforms, trusted and trained coaches and a supportive team, on and off the field.

This Do More 24, please help provide DC children with a team by donating!*
