The Southeast (SE) Tarheels Youth Sports Association is a sports based youth development program located in the Ward 8 area of Washington, DC.
The Junior Midget team (pictured above) had a spectacular 2016 football season. They ended the regular season undeafeated 7-0 while holding their opponents to only 27 points. Because of their hard work on and off the field, the team has qualified to compete in the American Youth Football (AYF) National Championships held in Orlando, Florida.
On Friday, December 8, 2017, the Southeast Tarheels JM team went on to defeat the Parkside Warriors 27 to 6, thus returning as two-time champions. ACC and community members are proud sponsors of the team.

The grants are intended to strengthen the organizational capacity, support leadership development, and ensure sustainability among nonprofits serving LGBTQ youth and young adults in DC. Grants were made in amounts between $10,000 and $15,000.
“We look forward to partnering with these community organizations to serve the needs of our LGBTQ youth,” said Mayor Bowser. “Our DC values include making homelessness rare, brief, and nonrecurring, and we will continue this work until every resident has a safe place to call home.”
