Soccer Youth Diversion Program, Events DC
CSC’s soccer program engages 15 young people, aged 14-18, in training sessions, games and tournaments to deter them from participating in gang activity and violence. We also facilitate two curricula – Youth Engaged in Leadership and Learning (YELL) and Phoenix Gang Awareness and Gang Prevention – to address anger management and mitigate other risk factors.
