Organization Overview

America SCORES Chicago (ASC) is a nonprofit organization focused on providing after school and summer programming that combines soccer, poetry, and service-learning. The mission of ASC is to inspire youth to lead healthy lives, be engaged students, and have the confidence and character to make a difference in the world. Currently serving neighborhoods in West and Southwest Chicago, ASC provides programming for students in K-8th grade. In addition to providing America SCORES programming in partnership with Chicago schools, ASC serves as a 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21CCLC) Lead Partner Agency and works to coordinate student and family resources that strengthen the connection between the school day and out-of-school time opportunities.
