Building Confident Community Leaders
The Awesome Academy serves children who have arrived in the United States through the refugee resettlement process. The intent of the program is to support children both socially and academically so that they can integrate more smoothly into their new homes.
Our Academic Programs
Our in and after school programs are welcomed by school districts in Houston and Austin, where we work with a variety of campuses both in and after school. Tutoring, field trips, and project-based learning are just some of the activities our Awesome Academy students enjoy. In the process, we also support teachers and staff by providing supplemental instruction and individualized student attention.
Our Soccer Program
Amaanah’s soccer program began in 2014, running training programs and tournaments in the local refugee community. In 2018, the teams rebranded under the Awesome Academy as the Amaanah Lions. Our dedicated team of volunteer coaches come from a diverse set of backgrounds, all with the intent to support Awesome Academy students and players through sport.
