Come close out the year by attending a Happy Hour Fundraiser for Street Soccer USA, a sports-oriented non-profit providing social services to youth and homeless adults in underserved neighborhoods throughout Brooklyn. With semi-permanent street soccer fields set up in Red Hook, Sunset Park, East New York, and Flatbush, Street Soccer USA has transformed these Brooklyn communities by giving children, young adults, and other at risk individuals a safe space to play. All proceeds raised from this event will fund on-going programming of in-school, after school, and community based initiatives.

Street Soccer USA is a social enterprise with revenue generating leagues and tournaments that leverage private donors and corporate responsibility donations to fund in-school, after school, community based club, and adult programs that improve the future of youth and young adults. Street Soccer introduces and builds the grassroots capacity of soccer in urban areas with goal of transferring life skills and creating a social safety net in the community for our participants. Our methodology of soccer instruction is informed by years of research and development in the field by others and informed by our own experience and expertise. Our 8 Street Soccer Skills (Show Up, Play with Heart, Look Up, Take the Space, Build Your Triangle,Praise Great Play, Play the Plan, Adjust the Plan) provide a problem solving framework that our participants can apply to every situation that life confronts them with.
