Our Partner “Salt Lake Futbol Club” and “Soccer4College”
What better time to empower and teach at risk youth to succeed in school and go onto college than while they are playing a game they love? Soccer 4 College is an innovative new program created by the University of Utah, be engaged students and work toward enrolling in college.
Soccer 4 College officially launches this month through a partnership with Midvale City. The program will include sixty student soccer players in two groups (ages 9-12 years old and 13-16 years old) who will attend nineteen soccer clinics and two field trips to the University of Utah and Salt Lake Community College. “This unique program addresses college participation and sends positive health and social messages to members of this increasingly influential population,” says Mauricio Agramont, community developer for Midvale City. In Midvale we are using this program to improve communication between parents and their children. Soccer 4 College is the perfect tool to get Latino fathers involved in their kids’ lives”.
