Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Students

My student-athletes are from the Southeast side of Chicago. They are inner-city student-athletes with love and passion for the game of Soccer. Our school's soccer program is highly competitive while instilling a fun atmosphere and enforcing good sportsmanship. We teach our student-athletes how to be leaders and prepare them for whatever lies ahead.

We pride ourselves in instilling to our student-athletes the importance of excelling both on and off the field.

We encourage our student-athletes to be just as excited about helping the community as they are for soccer, venturing out, and helping at local food pantries and other community events.

What makes my players special is that despite the overwhelming odds of growing up in a tough neighborhood on the Southside of Chicago, they maintain their energy and love for the sport; there is no challenge they will not take head-on.

My Project

There have been very few events that went as 'normal' since March 2020, and that goes especially for this past Soccer season for my youth team and me. Normally, I would treat them to a restaurant for pizza and wings but with COVID, our end-of-season celebration will be a little different.

I want to send my Soccer Players Subway gift cards for their hard work and dedication; playing safely through a pandemic and having success is not easy.

During this difficult time, it has been very draining both physically and mentally for our youth; all they want to do is play the sport they love. This will teach them, that we as a community still care and support them although our support needs to be from a distance. This caring gesture can guide our local youth to admire and take notice, in hopes of one day them doing it for future youth. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
