In 2014 Briana was named national spokesperson for America SCORES, an organization that brings after school and summer soccer programming to urban youth. Through these programs America SCORES not only emphasizes teamwork and fosters a love of the game, but also supports young athletes by keeping them engaged in their school work.
Briana contributes through her capacity as national spokesperson in many ways, whether it is speaking to students about her love of soccer, donating signed memorabilia to be raffled off for fundraising, or leading goalkeeping sessions with students. Briana is committed to America SCORES philosophy and goals.
Briana Scurry talks soccer and being named America SCORES national spokesperson
"Bri Scurry is an amazing woman and her life story and experiences resonate deeply with audiences. From corporate executives, to policy wonks, to women who idolized the 1999 team, to young girls who have heard the '99 stories, she educates, motivates and inspires. Bri is outstanding at connecting with audiences honestly and personally -- she always builds in a lot of time to answer questions and have a dialogue. Every time I hear her speak, I am thrilled to see that everyone in the room is energized not only because she's a soccer legend, but also because she's a true American role model."
"America SCORES empowers students in urban communities using soccer, writing, creative expression, and service-learning. With teamwork as the unifying value, we inspire youth to lead healthy lifestyles, be engaged students, and become agents of change in their communities."
"Briana Scurry has served as an incredible role model for youth in our after-school program, particularly girls. Briana has a special ability to relate to and connect with soccer players of all ages and experience levels and has made an indelible impact on those she's taught and spoken to. We couldn't be more thankful to Briana for her investment in DC SCORES and our poet-athletes!"
