DC SCORES is a local, non-profit after school program that reaches over 800 students each year at 27 schools located in some of DC’s most under-resourced neighborhoods. DC SCORES provides DC area youths with arts, athletics, and academics through an innovative model combining poetry and spoken word, soccer, and service-learning year-round.
Faced with declining test scores in reading and writing and skyrocketing childhood obesity rates, DC SCORES provides students with an enriching and fun after-school program where they can succeed both on and off the field. With DC SCORES? unique combination of activities, the program aims to make each and every student more engaged in school, increase their physical fitness through soccer, and increase their sense of self-worth and sense of belonging to their team, school, and community.
