BENEFITING: AMERICA SCORES

THE STORY:

America SCORES Bay Area is partnering with the Redwood City School District and Redwood City Parks, Recreation, and Community Services to expand the America SCORES program to Redwood City. America SCORES provides a high quality, afterschool program that integrates soccer, poetry, and service-learning. The mission of America SCORES is to inspire urban youth to lead healthy lives, be engaged students, and have the confidence and character to make a difference in the world.

Redwood City Project Overview
America SCORES will offer year-round programs to 2nd and 3rd grade students. In conjunction with the soccer program, America SCORES will provide a structured, standards-based poetry and creative writing program.

Target School Sites and Demographics for the Program
The targeted schools enroll students who are primarily low-income, Latino youth. Research shows that high quality after school programs and school-based sports activities can improve academic achievement, especially among low-income, minority youth. In addition, early intervention to promote student engagement in literacy is critical. America SCORES will pilot programs at 2 to 4 schools in the fall of 2015 and expand to all targeted schools by fall of 2017. Potential schools are Henry Ford, Hawes, John Gill, Hoover, Selby Lane, and Taft.

5,000 will help us to launch this quality after-school program in Redwood City. Please help us kickstart the fall season today!
