When Soccer and Poetry Meet, Kids Succeed: Q & A with DC SCORES

Soccer and poetry might not seem to have much in common, but one local non-profit unites them toward a common goal: empowering kids. DC SCORES runs free, year-round soccer programs and poetry workshops for thousands of kids in the District, fostering both teamwork and creative expression. Representatives Tony Francavilla and Charity Blackwell chatted with us about the program and shared some stories about their young poet-athletes.
