Boston Scores aims to provide urban youth with team-based education programs that promote health and well-being, academic engagement, and civic leadership. Our vision is for all youth to unlock their full potential - body, mind, and soul. Boston Scores partners with the Boston Public School teachers, our coach-mentors, to provide urban youth in grades K-12 with after-school soccer & enrichment programs. Students typically participate 5 days per week, including 2 days of girls and boys soccer practices, 2 days of enrichment classes (poetry or civic leadership) and a soccer game day in which teams are transported to play other BPS schools. When students enter high school, our enrichment programs add in college and job readiness workshops.
