Playing soccer is a way to establish a fun, healthy after-school environment for young girls in the program.
By providing them with a safe space to play, Girls Kick participants will develop bonds between teammates and forge a supportive community. The development of leadership skills through healthy competition will empower them to act as agents of change in their communities through service-learning projects.
Education is at the core of Girls Kick programming.
Full time enrollment and attendance is required of all participants. It is our goal to see every girl graduate high school and get a chance to attend college. Academic support is provided by trained educators in the following areas:
- Organizational skills
- Computer skills
- High school and college preparation
- English language classes
Health and Wellness
Many young women do not have access to knowledge of basic holistic self care practices.
Providing spaces that foster wellness is imperative to the quality of life of the participants. We intend to host programming that will instill the principles of healthier habits, physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health awareness.
As students build self-awareness and esteem through Girls Kick programs, they will be better equipped to set high goals for themselves and support their communities. The program will provide workshops on nutrition, wellness, mindfulness, and healthy relationships.
