Mission Statement

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

Description

America SCORES Chicago uses soccer, poetry and service-learning to engage underserved CPS students on the City's west side. Our core after school program serves over 500 3rd-8th grade students.

  • 1 in 3 children in the communities we serve are overweight. SCORES offers students a soccer and health curriculum, resulting in ten times the amount of physical fitness opportunities available to their peers.
  • 50 percent of the students in the communities we serve read below the state standard level. SCORES ties reading to creative writing and poetry. Poet-athletes show statistically significant improvement in literacy skills each season.
  • 1.5 million children in Illinois are left unsupervised after school, when juvenile crime rates triple. SCORES offers over 200 hours of after-school programming in a safe and supportive environment.
