More than 43 million people experience poverty in the United States of America today, many of whom are young people living in urban communities.


Founded in 1994, America SCORES works with a large cohort of students who live below the poverty line, in urban communities throughout the US and Canada. The organisation aims to inspire urban youth to lead healthy lives, become engaged students, and have the confidence and character to make a difference in the world.


America SCORES partners with public schools to empower young people in urban communities using football, writing, creative expression, and service learning. Through the curriculum, these students improve academically, increase their fitness, and experience a greater sense of confidence and belonging.


These young people not only become empowered themselves, but go on to become leaders in their communities.
