Do you enjoy soccer or writing? Volunteer with Cleveland SCORES and be a mentor to inner city youth in our unique after school program.
The Cleveland SCORES mission is to inspire in urban children a lasting dedication to education, healthy living, and civic responsibility.
We achieve our mission through out-of-school-time programs that combine soccer, creative writing, and community service, with teamwork as a unifying value. We regularly measure the impact of our programs on our childrens' lives and use those results to guide continuous program improvement.
Cleveland SCORES is an affiliate to America SCORES; a nationwide program, which uses poetry and soccer as tools to teach literacy, life skills, and the importance of community service to inner-city elementary school children. The children paraticipate five days a week for ten weeks each fall and spring.
