Getting the refugee kids of Chicago in the game!
The All Kids Play team was in Warren Park in the Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago this spring for the spring session of the All Kids Play refugee youth soccer program. The program participants are refugee kids that fled war, terror and persecution around the world to resettle with their families in the U.S. These kids are not only developing physically, mentally and emotionally from the soccer skills training but they are also learning important life skills from the mentor coaches leading the program. The program also provides the kids with access to academic tutoring. A big thanks to our non-profit friends at RefugeeOne, Chicago City Soccer Club, Educate Radiate Elevate and the Trevian Soccer Club Foundation for making this program possible.
