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.
