America SCORES Cleveland
America SCORES Cleveland (SCORES) ensures that Cleveland youth, no matter their socioeconomic background, have access to quality afterschool and enrichment programming. We engage and support poet-athletes to cultivate healthy, civically engaged students and leaders within our Cleveland community. Using SCORES’ soccer, creative writing, and community service curricula, students develop the experiences, knowledge, and skill sets to gain self-confidence, communicate more effectively, and develop healthy habits to help them realize their academic, social, and physical potential. Programming is delivered on-site, after school by school staff and qualified community members who train as Writing and Soccer Coaches in the SCORES curricula.
During this time SCORES continues to provide our poet-athletes with virtual lessons and help them stay connected to our program.
