Canada SCORES Vancouver

Canada SCORES Vancouver is a unique non-profit youth development organization that provides complimentary after-school programs for vulnerable elementary-aged children from inner-city schools. Our program runs after-school Monday to Friday and uses the game of soccer, the art of poetry, and community service experiences, as well as provides on-going mentoring relationships with our students to enrich their lives. Our goal is to improve our students' health and literacy, as well as to develop their empathy, social responsibility, and a sense of personal worth.

Teacher candidates will be assisting our soccer/poetry coach in the following areas:

  • plan and conduct soccer practices / classroom activities
  • maintain daily attendance records
  • supervise student movements between school locations
  • prepare daily after-school snacks
  • coordinate and deliver potential program field trips

Program Structure:

  • 3 days a week, we spend time on the soccer field developing a life-long appreciation of sports, physical fitness and health-enhancing behaviors
  • 2 days a week, we spend time in the classroom to develop a community service project
