Academic Excellence and College For Success Program
We work closely with school administrators to provide year-round tutoring services for economically disadvantaged and refugee/immigrant elementary and middle school students through our Academic Excellence Program.
Our Family Advocacy and Resource Program offers ESL classes for youth’s family members who want to improve their skills in speaking, reading and writing English. Through a partnership with Cargill, every month we distribute boxes of quality meat to Omaha-area families who need it most. Every year, we organize a clothing drive that provides hundreds of clothing/coats to refugee/immigrant and underserved youth. Our goal with each drive is to provide warm clothing, coats, hats and gloves to all our program participants, clients and families who need them.
The Simple Foundation™’s International Initiative aims to complete the true circle of giving. This year-long initiative encourages the global community to donate gently-used clothing, non-perishable food items, over-the-counter medication, soccer equipment, school supplies, toiletries and much more to impoverished regions in Ghana, Togo, Democratic Republic of Congo, Somalia, Kenya, and several other African countries.
We believe that soccer is a universal language. Our Youth Academy is the catalyst that captures the attention of young refugees and immigrants, and through culturally specific programming, encourages them to engage, interact and work with other children.
