South Bronx United Runs NYC 2019

    South Bronx United Runs the 2019 TCS New York City Marathon!

    Every day, South Bronx United works towards its mission of helping at-risk and immigrant youth build character, teamwork, and leadership skills so that they can achieve success in high school, college, their careers, their communities, and beyond. SBU believes that the game of soccer can help make children “healthier, happier and more confident.” 

    We feel that soccer – like running – can be the catalyst for building leadership skills, such as responsibility and teamwork. Our focus on the South Bronx neighborhood – a socioeconomically disadvantaged community that has among the nation’s highest obesity rates – brings together New Yorkers from different religions and nationalities to celebrate physical activity and its many benefits. Furthermore, we leverage the youth’s interest in soccer to provide more comprehensive programs and services including academic enrichment, college prep, mentoring, counseling, immigrant legal services, and much more.

    Our impact on the community is substantial and vital.  In 2019, we will serve more youth than ever before. Our programs will reach children as young as four years old and provide support services that continue for many young people into their early twenties. SBU will have managed more than 180 immigration legal services cases. 

    In the past six years, 100% of SBU Academy seniors have gone on to graduate high school and 94% have enrolled in college. The college readiness rate of our graduates is nearly three-times higher than the district average. 167 young adults call themselves SBU Academy alumni. More than 300 volunteers, coaches, staff, and board members will make this work possible on a daily basis.
