PAST & FUTURE PROGRAMS
Here’s a sampling of some of the fun stuff we’ve offered in the past and are starting to offer again now partly with mask mandate and outdoors. Make sure you’re on our email list so you’ll be the first to know when these and other programs are scheduled!
We are focusing on free enrichment programs for children of all abilities and backgrounds in a safe environment. Before the pandemic we ran seven weekly programs, such as adaptive soccer, dance and gymnastics, PlayABILITY, interactive reading, movement, art and music, but due to the current situation, we are now providing a virtual Saturday morning program, offering a brief impulse of music, art, movement and storytelling and friendship fostering.
The current situation does offer new options to our minorities by attending virtual meetings all over the world, though we know that remoteness is not the same as meeting in person.
All programs are donation based.

Saturday, Inclusive Soccer
Inclusive soccer, led by Super Soccer Stars! ( ❤️our gratitude for this generous Stipend!)
We love the coaches at Super Soccer Stars!
They’re great at teaching the physical, social and mental fundamental skills of soccer and beyond in an extremely fun and engaging way. They’re pros at adapting to the needs and interests of each child and respond to different age challenges, which makes them an incredible enrichment for our POW! community.
“Our mission is to empower kids through soccer and sports by teaching them how to have fun while learning the fundamentals.
We use soccer to nurture, build self-confidence, and develop teamwork in a positive environment.”-- Super Soccer Stars
