Our mission at City in the Community (CITC) New York is to empower NYC youth through soccer. Since 2014, CITC has served 30k youth across 60 percent of New York City’s communities through free soccer programming. In that time, we increased access to safe recreation spaces for youth by building 50 soccer pitches across the five boroughs.
In the next five years, we will develop more places for youth to play soccer, and we will keep our promise to deliver free, innovative community soccer programming with our community partners. We will do this to ensure every child in NYC has a safe place to play, learn, and lead. Let’s do it together. Let’s do it For the City.
