DC SCORES featured on the front page of The Washington Post

Today, DC SCORES is prominently featured on the front page of The Washington Post's Metro section.

An article by Brigid Schulte deals with an issue we wrestle with every day -- what students in our elementary and middle school soccer, poetry and service-learning program will have available to them when they become alumni.

As Executive Director Amy Nakamoto is quoted saying in the piece, it's "insane" that only four of 15 DC traditional high schools have organized girls soccer teams. This means that for many of our youth, the neighborhood they live in dictates whether they can continue to play the sport they've grown to love through DC SCORES.

We highly recommend you spend 5 minutes reading the article and share it if you feel moved.

Also, check it out on our Facbook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram pages.
