Seva Project Locations:
Minneapolis, Minnesota

Boston, Massachusetts

City: Minneapolis, Minnesota
Dates: October 2011 - May 2012

Background: The Richard Green Central Park Elementary School serves much of the South Minneapolis community. Students at Green Elementary are very passionate about soccer, but many are unable to afford the costs of playing in a league and buying equipment. The school system cannot support a soccer program for non-high school students.

Activities: Seva started an after school soccer program for 2nd-5th graders at Green Elementary to run from October 2011 to May 2012. Seva volunteers will coach basic soccer skills and scrimmages twice a week: on Mondays, a group of 20 2nd and 3rd graders will play; on Tuesdays, 4th and 5th graders will play. Coaches will put emphasis on promoting teamwork, confidence, and dedication.

Goals: We hope to start soccer programs in other Minneapolis schools, and eventually a House league.

How you can help: Our primary needs are volunteer coaches and equipment. Please visit our support page to learn more about how to support our efforts, or contact us if you have more questions.
