South Bronx United, Inc. is a nonprofit youth development organization, founded in 2009, that serves more than nearly 1,000 boys and girls each year through programs on the soccer field, in the classroom, and in the community. South Bronx United (SBU) combines academic enrichment, college prep, mentoring, leadership development, health and wellness programs, immigrant legal services, and other family and youth supports with recreational and travel soccer. SBU participants range from ages 4 to 20 years old and primarily come from low-income, immigrant families. The SBU Academy, the organization's highest-touch program, aims to provide a path from middle school to high school to college and careers. Within the past five years, 100 percent of SBU Academy seniors have graduated high school and 94 percent have enrolled in college.
