Soccer in the Streets
Soccer in the Streets is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that serves the at-risk youth population of Atlanta through the provision of sport programming and opportunities that allow participants to interact with culturally competent role models and mentors, form interpersonal relationships, develop within a stable social structure, and acquire job readiness training. We use soccer as a medium to connect with the community and create a comfortable teaching environment that serves as a space for healthy physical and social development to encourage academic success, criminal behavior avoidance, and financial independence.
