Southern New Hampshire University has partnered with Major League Soccer club LA Galaxy to serve as its Official Education Partner. Through this partnership, SNHU helps players, retired players and staff members achieve their goals with flexible online education.
"Education is a key component of our youth programs and a cornerstone of our LA Galaxy Foundation," said Chris Klein, LA Galaxy president. "Having a partner that values learning and development will be very impactful to our entire organization, as well as to the greater Los Angeles community."
SNHU and the LA Galaxy are working together in the creation of a Galaxy STEM curriculum, designed to teach science principles through the lens of soccer. This program will be available to middle school teachers throughout the Los Angeles public school system. Based on student participation and engagement, a winning school will be selected to receive a Science of Soccer assembly.
