For over 20 years, Boston Scores has delivered its unique blend of team-based Soccer, Poetry and Service Learning programs to students in the Boston Public Schools.
In the wake of school closures in the spring of 2020, Scores has adapted its Power of Poetry, Soccer For Success and One Hen Social Entrepreneurship curricula into a series of weekly video projects and challenges available to any student or educator.
We encourage you to create & express, to move and play, to connect and help with us.

Week of May 11 – May 15: How does a business earn money? For a social entrepreneur, it all starts with an understanding of Revenues (the $$ you bring), Costs (the $$ you must spend to make & sell your product) and Profit (the $$ you have left over that you can re-invest in your product and your community).
Week of April 27 – May 1: For this week’s Power of Poetry challenge, you’ll need a book, magazine or newspaper that you don’t mind drawing all over. And a couple of markers or dark pens. Coach Kieran show’s you have to create a super fun kind of poem called Erasure (or Blackout Poetry) using other people’s words and YOUR creativity!
Week of April 27 – May 1: Ever watch the show Shark Tank? Well, it’s not just TV reality show contestants who have to explain (or “pitch”) their ideas to investors or to their friends & families. It’s a skill that every person who wants to start their own business needs to practice. Coach Nelson and Coach Gaby are here to help with these week’s challenge: writing a pitch for your own business idea!
