DC SCORES builds teams through after school programs for 800 low income DC youth at 29 schools by instilling self-expression, physical fitness, and a sense of community. Through an innovative model combining poetry and spoken word, soccer, and service-learning year-round, students are engaged in arts, athletics, and academics daily. DC SCORES believes that every child should grow up with these basic elements available to them and has worked with over 6,000 students since 1994.  DC SCORES has successfully integrated the Ask, Listen, Learn interactive games and other program related materials to their programming at the schools they serve.
