Our Mission 

ADSL provides quality programming for youth participants by building self-esteem, leadership skills and healthy lifestyles  through athletic and academic achievement.

Our Goals 

All Dorchester Sports & Leadership’s programs look to successfully address community needs. ADSL’s focus on sports, regular physical activity, nutrition and academic success encourages healthy habits and choices for our participants and their families. Additionally, we provide youth with an alternative to risky behaviors where they can excel by working on teams, build self esteem, develop leadership skills, and engage with positive role models and mentors. Today, 35% of the population in Dorchester lives below the poverty line and several Dorchester neighborhoods are considered to be underserved and with minimal resources. Our staff, volunteers, donors, and friends work daily to provide guidance for our youth and to encourage positive choices.
