Become a Kicks for Kids Beneficiary
“I heard wonderful feedback from all who attended. One student exclaimed, 'That was the most fun I've had in a long time!' while another added, 'I almost lost my voice from screaming in the stands.” — Evelyn Iraheta, Aspira Association
Any non-profit, 501(c)3 organization or other community-based organization serving youth in the Washington, D.C. community may apply to be a Kicks for Kids beneficiary. Priority is given to those groups that work with inner-city, at-risk, urban, disadvantaged or other under-served children and/or those groups that emphasize "life skills" initiatives, particularly those pertaining to reading, literacy and healthy lifestyles in general.
For information on how to make the most of your "game-day experience":
- Plan accordingly! Arrive early, as the meal voucher redemption center and the Kicks for Kids check-in booth both close at the end of the first half, or 45 minutes after kickoff.
- Sign up for other programs! Take advantage of the D.C. United Youth Fan Club and Coaches Associations as other programs with freebies for your youth and coordinators.
- Partake in other activities! At many games, other events and activities are occurring in which your kids might be able to participate, such as the Youth Parade and Soccer Celebration. Learn about the above and more in the Coordinator Manual!
