South Bronx United
World Cup fever may have subsided but South Bronx United
has tapped into the passion for the world’s most popular sport and harnessed it for teamwork on the field and in the classroom. Targeting a hugely diverse community of international students in the Bronx, SBU tutors and mentors boys and girls of all ages after school with their homework and college test prep before heading out to the field for soccer practices and matches. Bringing these students up through this program creates community and a support system that allows them to set their sites on more than just one type of goal.
