The L.A. FC Barcelona Soccer Foundation 501(c)(3) was created to promote a social model that supports the achievement of social, cultural, and educational programs for underprivileged youth through our Soccer Academy KIDS OFF THE STREETS. These programs, on their own or as part of collaborations, allow us to fulfill our social commitment not only nationally but internationally as well. In that spirit, the message must be clear, education is the gateway to their future.
Participation in youth sports improves academic performance, increases self confidence, and promotes health and well being. Children who take part in team sports are more likely to finish high school and attend college while simultaneously far less likely to suffer from childhood obesity and related diseases.
