“SCORES was the most amazing thing that ever happened
to me. It kept me away from the bad crowd and helped me
focus on school and soccer. The time I spent created a new
person and laid the foundation I needed to become who I am
today. SCORES has provided opportunities for me to excel in
school, on the field, and in the real world.”
– Nahoul, LA SCORES Alum, College Graduate
“I feel good about teaching again because of SCORES. I’ve been
able to connect with my students in a way that I never would
have just in the classroom. When we say that SCORES changes
lives, most of the time we mean the lives of the kids in our
program. But SCORES has touched my kids, my school, and me
in ways that we will all feel for many years to come.”
– Ms. Druelinger, DC SCORES Coach
“To these student-athletes, as it was for me, soccer is more
than just a game. It is a hub, a catalyst for building friendships
and community. America SCORES can help students become
more responsible and engaged in school. Soccer is a powerful
tool that, when used in the right way, can help young people
mature into role-models, mentors, and well-rounded citizens.”
– Yuri Morales, America SCORES Bay Area Chief Program Officer
