2022 Celebration of Service Award Winner- America SCORES
"America SCORES is honored to be named Sports Business Journal's 2022 Celebration of Service Award winner and to join the distinguished list of past winners who use sport as a vehicle to drive social change. America SCORES believes that every child deserves equitable access to quality sport experiences. Through our free school-based youth soccer leagues, we remove barriers to sports participation and fight systemic inequities faced by young people in high-poverty neighborhoods. Using our unique blend of soccer, arts, and community action, our poet-athletes are inspired to lead healthy lives and have the confidence and character to make a difference in the world. We believe healthy bodies and healthy minds lead to healthy communities. Thank you for helping to shine a light on our work so that we can in turn refract that light and shine a spotlight on our poet-athletes."
