Residential College in the Arts and Humanities Civic Engagement Fund

Lansing’s Refugee Development Center—a longtime RCAH community partner—has a boys’ soccer team, but it has not had the funding or support to engage girls in soccer. The boys’ team has been wildly popular and extremely competitive around Michigan, and the girls of the RDC are ready and motivated to get involved.

Support equal opportunity, fairness, and access for all: Help girls from the Lansing Refugee Development Center engage in soccer like the RDC boys.

Your investment will help refugee girls who have moved to the Greater Lansing area from around the world engage in soccer programs with the RDC. You will help these girls gain the confidence and collaborative skills that come from team sports, and help RCAH students as they record this initiative in images, video, and written words.

RDC soccer team playersPictured: Girls of the Lansing Refugee Development Center who would be supported in their desire to engage in soccer, and some of the RDC boys who already have a team.
