helping kids score goals on the field and achieve goals in the classroom

Our Story

America SCORES partners with urban schools to provide a high quality, team-based program that integrates soccer, poetry, and service- learning. Our innovative approach improves students’ health, academic achievement, and civic engagement.

America SCORES LA (also known locally as LA SCORES) was founded in 2002 to address the need for quality after-school programs in the Palms area, one of Los Angeles’ socio-economically under-resourced communities. LA SCORES provides a safe after-school alternative in an area where youth centers, libraries and parks are noticeably absent. Our overall goal is to cultivate the literacy and leadership skills that enable urban youth to excel in school and in life.

America SCORES Los Angeles inspires urban youth to lead healthy lives, be engaged students, and have the confidence and character to make a difference in the world.
