What is Soccer in the Streets?

Soccer in the Streets is a not-for-profit organization that works to develop young leaders so they can lead rich lives and cultivate healthy communities through sports-based youth development. Core to its mission is providing better access to quality soccer programs and making youth ready for employment. Founded in 1989 in Atlanta, the organization reaches kids through soccer play, work-readiness training, hands-on experiential activities, and participation in youth leadership councils. The organization is gaining worldwide recognition for its ‘StationSoccer’ initiative – which builds soccer fields and community classrooms in and around metro transit hubs.

Why they are Awesome

  • In 2016 Soccer in the Streets launched StationSoccer on the plaza level at Five Points Station in Atlanta, resulting in the first soccer field project inside a train station in the world.
