Mission Statement

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.

Description

America SCORES Cleveland (SCORES) was founded in the spring of 2004 with free after-school programming for 120 students in four Cleveland Metropolitan School District elementary schools. Since then, programming has expanded based upon community interest and the need for quality after-school programming within our Cleveland Metropolitan K-8 schools. America SCORES calls its student participants poet-athletes to celebrate their creativity and physical activity. America SCORES Cleveland currently serves over 1,000 poet-athletes in 11 schools.

The program provides 10 weeks each fall and spring season of intensive soccer and literacy arts after-school programming to children, ages 8-15, in separate boys' and girls' teams.. In the fall, the literacy arts focus is poetry and creative writing while in the spring, the children engage in service learning and community stewardship.
