Upper Ninety is a positive youth development program for teenagers in Austin's low-income communities.
Upper Ninety uses soccer as educational tool. Our program combines training with social-emotional learning, Restorative Justice, and mindfulness to help students build a foundation for success that lasts for a lifetime. Students work through life’s challenges in a confidential, respectful, non-judgmental environment with their peers and supportive coaches.
Upper Ninety is dedicated to equipping Austin’s low-income youth with the social, emotional, and practical tools needed to thrive––not just survive. Soccer is what brings our students to the field, but it's just the start of what we do. We're on a mission to help low-income Austin teens become unstoppable--on the soccer field, in the classroom, and in life.
