What can you do to help the Volo City Kids Foundation? It’s as easy as 1,2,3…

Boston, we need your help!

Play With Purpose

We play so kids can play for free! It’s what sets us apart. Where else do you have the opportunity to play a game with your friends, meet new people, while making a positive change in your community?

Together we make a difference, but there is more we can do! The need for free quality leagues for Boston’s youth grows more and more every day. The best part is, we make it easy for you to donate! In addition to the traditional methods, you can donate through Venmo: @volocity-kids, or online at kidsweek.volocity.org.

Did you know that 70% of kids quit sports due to high costs, excessively competitive environments, and the pressure to specialize too early? Your donation will go towards equipment, fields, curriculum development, referees, team t-shirts, and healthy meals for every Volo Kid! Whether you donate time, skill, or money, know that you are actively making a difference. You are changing lives and improving your community

WE PLAY SO KIDS CAN PLAY FOR FREE

What is the Volo City Kids Foundation?

The Volo City Kids Foundation provides free youth sports programming to kids ages 6-12 across the nation. We remove barriers to entry by making our services free of cost to the kids and families we serve. In addition to the weekly practice and game coaching, we provide postgame meals that give players and parents the opportunity to meet others within the community as well as connect with our volunteers. The best part? We make it easy to connect you with your community – as simple as Click. Play. Enjoy.

Since our inception in 2015, we have engaged over 700 kids and have impacted the lives of over 3,000 kids all over the United States!
