Soccer in the Streets (SITS) offers a unique combination of soccer play and life-skills programming to youth within
their own communities, at their schools, and at SITS-sponsored venues like West End MARTA StationSoccer. SITS
focuses on creating young leaders who live rich lives and contribute to healthy communities. Soccer in the Streets
has been at work in Atlanta’s low-income communities for thirty years. In 2018 alone, SITS served over 5,000
youth through partnership programs with Atlanta Public Schools and other civic groups. With a strong track record of
pioneering programs, SITS is preparing to enter its next phase of development, transforming lives and communities
through StationSoccer, the world’s first transit soccer network, connecting 2,500 kids participating in SITS programs
throughout the city.
Soccer in the Streets brings young, bright, culturally competent role models to inspire kids to follow the right path
and educate the youth to the opportunities that can be available to them. Using soccer as a medium, trained coaches
teach skills and life lessons, such as personal responsibility and job readiness. They engage the youth and create a
lasting relationship of trust and a channel of communication. Through partnering organizations – such as schools,
community centers, and parks – multiple sessions are conducted each week to ensure a consistent community
presence and ongoing positive influence among the youth.
