Soccer and poetry is not a typical pair, but for America SCORES New York poet-athletes, the combination allows for creativity, self-expression and leadership opportunities on the field, in the classroom and the community.


We impact over 600 students at 14 public schools in Harlem and Washington Heights through free, year-round after-school programming, consisting of:


Soccer – School soccer teams create a sense of belonging and an opportunity to be physically active 4-5 hours per week.


Literacy – At weekly writing workshops, our poet-athletes develop literacy skills, practice self-expression and produce original works of poetry.


Community – Regular soccer games, poetry slams and service projects celebrate student achievement and build community.

The result: SCORES students are stronger, smarter and happier.


We have a waitlist of public schools that desperately need innovative after-school enrichment – help us reach more students like Jeremy!
