Atlanta United just wrote about one of our coaches, Leigh Jakes, and we wanted to make sure you saw it! It's a great story that highlights the reason Soccer in the Streets exists.

We couldn't hire amazing people like Leigh to teach & impact our kids without your support, so please consider donating to support more success stories like this!

We especially loved this quote from Leigh:

“It’s about providing opportunities to develop through sports, opportunities to develop their character, provide them mentors and employment opportunities as well. It was a big moment figuring out that the kids are actually listening to me, even if they don’t show me at the time, realizing they’re not just learning things on the soccer field, they’re learning ways to implement these skills into their daily lives.”
