Soccer Program

In 2006, NOAH began sponsoring soccer at the American Legion Field. This bilingual soccer program is particularly important in East Boston, where the growing population of South and Central Americans are avid soccer players. There is little recreational space in the area, but through permits sanctioned by the local government, our program provides an opportunity for many community members to play this favorite sport. With support from the Boston Community Grants Program, we developed and formalized this program to serve middle school age youth during the summer months. This expansion of the program was especially timely because the East Boston Academia de Futbol, the main soccer program for children in the community, had recently closed. Youth participants are enthusiastic about the program, and every year since its creation, NOAH’s soccer program has become more popular.
