Calling all Tutors, Coaches, and Mentors!

We are always looking for more talented and cause-driven individuals to help support our work.

Students Organized to Understand Leadership (SOUL) is a sports-based youth development program that collaborates with DC Public Schools and other community-based organizations to provide youth residing in DC’s Ward 7 with academic, athletic, character, and professional enrichment opportunities.

We need your support with advancing our student-athletes toward educational excellence.

Volunteers will work with our youth to enhance their reading and writing skills. This will occur through one-on-one and small group literacy projects, in addition to after-school homework support. Some volunteers will support the youth develop their basketball abilities.


  • All volunteers must pass DCPS background check
  • Complete a in-person interview
  • Attend a volunteer training sessions
