Bethany Hendersen of DC Scores on Kids and Communities
Through the Noise #58
Bethany Hendersen // Executive Director // DC SCORES
You may think lots of kids are writing poetry and playing soccer and think how nice it is. But there is more to it then that. These types of programs and others offered by DC SCORES are helping kids and building communities.
Bethany Rubin Henderson is an award-winning social entrepreneur whose career has spanned the public, private, and nonprofit sectors, including service as a White House Fellow in the Obama Administration. She strongly believes every child deserves an equal chance and every community deserves engaged citizens. Bethany and her husband have two kids, a dog, and a blog about their struggles to juggle their two-career, two-kid household.
DC SCORES builds teams for low-income DC youth that instill self-expression (through poetry), physical fitness (through soccer), and a sense of community (through service). We are one of the largest DC youth development organizations, and have worked with over 9,000 students.
