DC SCORES creates neighborhood teams that give kids the confidence and skills to succeed on the playing field, in the classroom, and in life.

Since 1994, DC SCORES has changed the lives of over 25,000 kids by creating neighborhood teams. Through a unique combination of soccer, spoken-word poetry, and service-learning, thousands of elementary and middle school students in D.C. have felt empowered to become the best versions of themselves.

During Giving Tuesday, the largest international day of giving, we want you to join us to support our local community. We need your support to continue offering thousands of kids the opportunity to be a part of DC SCORES.

On December 3rd, we want to invite YOU to be a part of our team and support the District's future!
