Mission Statement

Soccer in the Streets creates young leaders who live rich lives and cultivate healthy communities

Description

We pursue leveling the playing field for all, affording access to the sport regardless of race, gender, religion, or socioeconomic status. We bring young, bright, culturally competent role models to inspire youngsters to follow the right path and educate the youth to opportunities that may be available to them. By doing this we run community soccer programs with pick-up and league play around metro-Atlanta.

Using soccer as a medium, trained coaches teach skills and life lessons, such as personal responsibility and job readiness. The coaches engage the youth and create a lasting relationship of trust and a channel of communication.

Through partnering organizations - such as schools, community centers, and parks - multiple sessions are conducted each week to ensure a consistent community presence and ongoing positive influence among the youth. We also focus on the impact on social justice and how there is a distribution of opportunity and privilege.
