Canada SCORES envisions a world where all youth find their voice, achieve their goals and reach their full potential.
Canada SCORES is a registered Canadian charity based in Burnaby, British Columbia. We were founded in June 2013 and began our unique after-school programming at no cost to our families in January 2014 with 45 students in 3 Burnaby elementary schools. Today, we have grown to support over 200 students, grades 4-7, through partnerships with 12 schools from Burnaby, Surrey, and New Westminster.
Canada SCORES inspires urban youth to lead healthy lives, be engaged students, and have the confidence and character to make a difference in the world.
Canada SCORES Vancouver partners with urban schools to provide a high quality, team-based after-school program that integrates soccer, poetry and service-learning.
