Sterling goes in depth with Trustee and Secretary of America SCORES (Bay Area), Dameon Philpotts. America SCORES empowers its “poet-athletes” to lead healthy lifestyles, be engaged and collaborative students and have the confidence and character to make a difference in the world. They partner with after school providers in under-served communities, to offer free after-school youth development programs that improve health outcomes, self and academic confidence and community connectedness. Each spring, their students are actively engaged in service learning. For this year’s new curriculum, Act of Kindness, students journal their own acts of kindness and reflect on how those good deeds greatly impact both the doer and the receiver.
