Our Program

Canada SCORES Vancouver partners with urban schools to provide a high quality, team-based after-school program that integrates soccer, poetry and service-learning.

 

Our innovative approach improves students’ health, academic achievement and civic engagement. 

Soccer

The World's Most Popular Sport

“The Beautiful Game” requires minimal equipment and is accessible to children regardless of socioeconomic status. Soccer engages youth with their peers in physical activity and provides a platform for teaching healthy living. Youth who play soccer also learn the values of teamwork, sportsmanship, and commitment

Poetry

Improving Literacy

Creative thinking promotes problem solving and performing instills public speaking skills. Writing and performing poetry gives youth an outlet to express emotionally charged experiences that may inhibit their ability to perform academically. Creative writing also encourages a personal connection to literature, which deepens classroom engagement.

Community Service

Change Starts At Home

Volunteerism instills in children a sense of compassion, social responsibility, and personal worth. Through community-based projects, children develop leadership skills and collaborative experiences at an early age. Youth apply their knowledge to group-selected community projects, which inspires self-efficacy and pride.
