What makes your organization unique?

NorthStar Soccer Ministries is both a non-profit and a recreational soccer club.

Soccer is NorthStar’s primary tool for impacting the lives of urban youth in Birmingham, but NorthStar’s mission goes way beyond the soccer field. While delivering high-quality soccer training, NorthStar uses the game of soccer to encourage character development and foster a love for physical health and well-being in urban youth from a young age. NorthStar serves over 200 urban youth in the Birmingham area, and NorthStar has over 50 volunteers who act as both soccer coaches and role-models for the children in our program.

Tell us why your organization deserves to win Uptick’s Marketing Magic City Makeover Competition!

NorthStar Soccer Ministries is doing so much more than providing a fun activity for urban children in Birmingham. NorthStar is making a holistic and life-long impact in the lives of the children we serve. Through the game of soccer, children are given the opportunity to develop as individuals. They learn how to take risks, how to work together as a team, how to persevere, how to set goals, how to communicate with others and so many other invaluable lessons that transcend throughout a person’s entire life. Volunteer coaches and NorthStar staff mentor, love, support and encourage NorthStar players. Current and past participants of NorthStar would certainly testify to the profound impact NorthStar has had in the lives of urban children in Birmingham. In order to maintain and grow that impact, NorthStar desperately needs a Magic City Makeover!
