Welcome to The W.H.E.N! Foundation!

The AYSO W.H.E.N! Foundation is a new 501c3 born from the foundational tenets of the American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) with the goal of bringing more physical activity, nutrition education, and wellness initiatives to communities across the nation.

Access W.H.E.N!

The numbers speak for themselves!  Both low income households as well as females are increasingly dropping out of sports in comparison to their high-income and male counterparts (Project Play, Aspen Institute).

In low-income areas across the US, access to parks, recreational activities and free after-school programming is at an all-time low. In an effort to increase the number of active kids in the US, the W.H.E.N! Foundation places a focus on cultivating access for our hardest hit demographics – bridging the gap between accessible programs and the kids who need them the most.
