Aleks Kunovac ’24 and Charlie McEwen’24 launch Community Soccer Program

Aleks Kunovac ’24 and Charlie McEwen’24 are giving back their love of soccer to youth in their community.

Last year, they launched HFX Youth Futbol, running free recreational practices for local youth. This summer, they worked to set up a cleat drive for families who are new to Canada to help equip them with the footwear they need to play. Aleks and Charlie will continue to run their recreational program this coming school year and pop-up soccer events over the summer.

From their Instagram: "Our mission is to empower and uplift amazing young athletes in Nova Scotia, giving them opportunities to thrive on and off the field.”

We wish you the best of luck with your mission, Aleks and Charlie. We are proud of your initiative to make a difference in your community.
