America SCORES inspires urban youth to lead healthy lives, be engaged students, and have the confidence and character to make a difference in the world.

America SCORES envisions a world where all youth find their voice, achieve their goals, and unleash their full potential.

Our Unique Approach
America SCORES partners with urban schools to provide a high quality, team-based program that integrates soccer, poetry and service-learning. Our innovative approach improves students’ health, academic achievement and civic engagement.

Three Step Process to Youth Development
1 – We create teams through the sport of soccer.
2 – We bring these teams into the classroom to discover their voice through poetry.
3 – As a team, poet-athletes learn to use their voices to make change in their communities.
The result is a team of children who experience success on the field, in the classroom, and in the community.

Writing Program
Our writing program emphasizes creative expression. Students improve literacy skills while learning to value their voices and ideas.

Soccer Program
Our soccer program gets bigger and better every year. Our Saturday Game Days, the highlight of the program, draw hundreds of young players and their families together once a week.

Jr. SCORES Program
SCORES now offers programs to first and second graders in West Contra Costa and San Francisco. Like the third through fifth graders, juniors participate in literacy lessons, soccer practices, and weekly soccer games. SCORES is implementing innovative curriculum that uses stories to engage students in writing lessons and spark their imaginations.
