Soccer in the Streets via Crowdrise
June 26, 2013
Soccer in the Streets empowers kids who lack opportunity to become independent young adults by building character and self-reliance through soccer and employment experience.
As someone who understands the power of sport and physical activity, we are asking for your help to raise awareness of our organization and the plight of our kids and raise the necessary funds to provide services to the kids that they need to succeed in life.
We are an organization that serves in a holistic, comprehensive and in-depth way, reaching kids on the field, in small-group classroom sessions, through hands-on experiences and activities, and through participation in a youth advisory council. We are extremely efficient, making great use of the resources we’ve been given to achieve the mission. This is demonstrated by our growth at a time others in the field have struggled to survive. We have mastered “simple.” We’ve boiled down the benefits of kids playing soccer to its essence and expanded it to many other aspects of the kids’ lives. We are experts at being flexible and nimble, constantly examining our role and finding a niche, anticipating the needs of kids and listening to them to help us determine the direction in which we need to go to best serve them.
