Using soccer to develop leaders

Thanks in large part to the WellMet grant, SBU has successfully expanded its South Bronx immigrant support services.”
Serving 4-19 year olds of diverse backgrounds, South Bronx United uses soccer to build teamwork, character and leadership skills on and off the field. The organization also promotes educational achievement by addressing the needs of middle school students to support college enrollment and graduation. Our 2015 grant of $20,000 is to establish a permanent Legal Partnerships Coordinator position - a position focussed on immigrant legal services.
