MISSION AND VISION “I get to be with my teammates, and have fun. I don’t have to think of anything else outside of soccer.” Giselle Balvuena, 13

O

ur mission is to use soccer as a tool for social change. We aim to help youth build character, teamwork, and leadership so that they can succeed in high school, college, careers, the

greater community and beyond. We strive to promote educational achievement, health and wellness, and character development through activities on and off the soccer field and to unite a diverse group of individuals and an incredibly diverse community toward common positive goals.

S

ince 2009, South Bronx United (SBU) has enriched the lives of boys and girls in the South Bronx community. The organization began with one team of 16 boys training on the corner of

a muddy baseball field and has since grown into a community of more than 600 children and youth, ages 4-19, and over 180 dedicated volunteers each year. SBU programs go well beyond the soccer field, including academic enrichment, college prep, mentoring, leadership development, immigration legal services, and other social support services. Through the SBU Academy, the organization provides a pathway from middle school to high school to college for South Bronx youth and a resource and outlet for immigrant youth and their families. The organization and its programs strive to contribute to the revitalization of the South Bronx.

Please explore the following pages to learn what South Bronx United accomplished in 2014.


What a year we had! 2014, South Bronx United’s sixth year, brought a lot to be proud of, many youth to congratulate, and many more people to thank. Two numbers stand out the most: • 94% of SBU Academy seniors graduated high school on time. • 100% of SBU Academy graduates have enrolled in college. In comparison, consider that only 56% of students attending South Bronx high schools and 37% of New York City black and Latino males graduate high school in four years…. Despite this success, SBU makes sure that high school graduation and college matriculation is just the first step. In August, we hired a Director of College Placement and Alumni to work closest with our seniors and graduates to make sure that SBU youth are getting the best possible education and setting themselves up for college and career success. This was far from the only big addition this year: • SBU became Youth Soccer Affiliate of New York City FC, Major League Soccer’s newest team that will be kicking off its first season at Yankee Stadium. Youth had the opportunity to play with Spanish World Cup star David Villa, coaches have received training from Manchester City’s Rodolfo Borrell, Messi’s former youth coach, and more Bronx youth will have the opportunity to play soccer as a result. • SBU partnered with Catholic Charities and the South Bronx Health Center to provide a recreational outlet and support services to some of the city’s most vulnerable youth, including a growing number of unaccompanied immigrant minors. Meanwhile, SBU screened over 200 individuals for immigration relief services thanks to the efforts of a new Legal Partnership Coordinator. • SBU formalized a mentoring structure by assigning all seven SBU Academy travel teams a Team Mentor on staff to make sure every participating youth has an adult who keeps an eye out for them in school, at home, and on the soccer field. • Several other programs started or expanded, including Summer Soccer Scholars, SBU Youth Council, Sophomore Skills, Prep School placements, and more. Many youth were worthy of recognition in 2014, a number of whom you will read about in the following pages. Among them were Cesar Gonzalez, Iyayi Imade, and Jose Lacayo, who became the first SBU Academy youth to complete the SBU Academy’s middle school to college pathway. They joined South Bronx United in 2009 as 8th graders and started as college freshman last September.

There were also so many people to thank in 2014, from the 188 volunteers serving as tutors, coaches, mentors, and more; to

the now 10-person staff dedicating days, nights, and weekends to enriching youth’s lives; to the parents and families who support their children’s commitment; to the hundreds of new and returning donors who make SBU programming possible.

Thus, it is with great pride that I present to you the following report on South Bronx United and its growth in 2014. I welcome

you to visit us in 2015 to see for yourself the amazing things that are happening on the soccer field and in the classroom. Sincerely,

Andrew So Executive Director South Bronx United, Inc.

outh Bronx United’s Summer Soccer Scholars is a free, five-week, full-day program that provides 80 students from the SBU Academy with engaging academic classes, a

leadership curriculum facilitated by Changing the Odds at the Morris Heights Health Center, college and SAT prep for rising seniors, and fitness and soccer training. College student interns serve as teachers and mentors. This year all students studied magazine or sports journalism and environmental science, culminating this summer with a trip to the Tiorati Nature Center at Harriman State Park to engage in scientific inquiry work facilitated by a Bank Street College of Education program. Weekly field trips included canoeing at Orchard Beach, hiking and swimming at Bear Mountain State Park, Coney Island, and Six Flags Great Adventure.

“This summer, SBU turned me into a role model.” Ama Adutwiwaa, Intern

“It was rewarding to see how much the students developed as writers during the summer. I hope that I made a lasting impact on the students I worked with this summer, because I know they have all made a lasting impact on me.” Ethan Back, Intern

SUMMER SOCCER SCHOLARS


YOUTH PROFILES BRENDA CASIMIRO, 12TH GRADE, SBU RISING STARS Before coming to South Bronx United, I didn’t care much for school, nor did I care about going to college. I was going to be another statistic, a dropout who gets pregnant at an early age. SBU required tutoring and SAT Prep. I didn’t want to go but I went because of soccer. On my first day, I didn’t understand the work. SBU helped me through it. They didn’t leave me alone. They chased after me. They offered extra help. They had faith in me. I became a referee, coach, and recreational league manager. I helped create the SBU Youth Council and have met new people who help me grow stronger. Now, as a senior I want to be the first in my family to go to college. SBU has been the best thing that has happened to me. Without them I wouldn’t be where I am today.

“… I want to be the first in my family to go to college.”

KALIFALAH KENNEH, 8TH GRADE, SBU 00 LA FURIA AZUL I have grown on and off the field since I joined South Bronx United through the Recreational Program in 2010. I was able to join the travel team because SBU saw potential in me that most people did not. I used to be overweight, but SBU helped me get in shape and become a better player. If you’re not the best player physically, then they tell you to be the best player mentally. SBU is not only about soccer like other clubs. It is also about education. The program helps you on and off the field, they help you with what you need help with, and they give you good advice. South Bronx United provided me resources and money that I needed to study for and take the admissions test for preparatory high schools. Because of SBU, I am on my way to a great high school next year. SBU has had a great impact on my life.

“SBU is not only about soccer like other clubs. It is also about education.”

BAKARY COULIBALY, 12TH GRADE, SBU 95 BLUE DEVILS In 1998, when Bakary was two-years-old, his family fled civil war in the Republic of the Congo. His mother took him, his older brother Hackou and younger sister Aminata to the safety of the Ivory Coast. His father left for Egypt and then the United States in search of work. A year later, the family fled again, after fighting broke out in its new home, and settled in Mali. Soon after that, Bakary’s mother moved to New York to be with her husband, leaving her three children to grow up with their uncle in Nioro du Sahel, in the Sahara desert on the border between Mali and Mauritania. Bakary didn’t see either of his parents again until he was 15. In June 2011, they brought him to live with them and his two American-born younger brothers, in Soundview, in the Bronx.

Before he came to America, Bakary had never played on a real soccer field;

just rocky patches of bare earth back in Mali. His first practice with South Bronx United in October 2011 was overwhelming. He was shy and barely spoke English --

F

ourteen years ago, four-year-old Aicha and her family fled wartorn Sierra Leone on foot over the border to Guinea. At that time, it was unimaginable that the Aicha would go on to college,

let alone attend the City College of New York on a $4,000 college scholarship through South Bronx United.

Aicha immigrated to the United States to live with

her aunt in the Bronx. She joined South Bronx United for the inaugural season of the SBU Rising Stars in 2011, and maintained an excellent academic record, graduating as the valedictorian of Bronx Latin High School with a 4.0 GPA. Without the scholarship, Aicha would have been unable to attend college this fall due to complications with her immigration status. Her situation has since been resolved putting her on the path to college success and an anticipated degree in a liberal arts field.

“South Bronx United opens doors for youth like myself who want to be community leaders and provides a platform for their voices to be heard…. I enjoyed exploring cultures and learning from people with contrasting backgrounds.” - Aicha Fofana, City College of New York

G

uibel received a $1,000 PlaySoccer2Give-South Bronx United college scholarship that has supported her during her freshman year at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Guibel moved

from Ecuador when she was 9 years old. She has been part of South Bronx United and the SBU Rising Stars high school girls soccer team for three years and has also volunteered with the recreational program and U14 girls program. She graduated in June from University Prep Charter High School where she earned a 3.2 GPA. Guibel intends to major in Industrial and Mechanical Engineering or Applied Mathematics and has been very involved in the community. She serves as the Freshman Representative to the Latin American Student Association and attending a conference in Michigan on behalf of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers.

“My first semester of college was full of hard work. Thanks to South Bronx United I was able to adjust to the environment and overcome every challenge.” - Guibel Marino, Rochester Institute of Technology
