Our Mission: Equip teens from low-income Austin neighborhoods with a community of support and the social, emotional, and practical tools needed to thrive in today’s world. 

How it Works: Verde Leaders provides opportunities for students in the classroom, on the field, and in their communities. 

  • After-school training: Students train twice a week on-site at their schools, where they develop soccer skills and critical SEL skills like communication and conflict resolution. 
  • In-school support: During the school day, students meet one-on-one and in small groups with Social Workers to work toward personal and academic goals. 
  • Community Engagement: On the weekends, students from across East Austin come together for educational field trips, family days, and scrimmages –right in their own neighborhoods.
