Andrew Wenger kicks off second year of the First Pass Initiative

Andrew Wenger and his teammates kicked off the second year of the First Pass Initiative at The Forge for Families in Houston's Third Ward.

The First Pass Initiative is a joint program between The FORGE for Families and Dynamo Charities to teach teamwork and accountability through soccer. Dynamo and Dash players and coaches will teach students the fundamentals of soccer and share their professional experiences on the field and in the classroom.

FORGE students will work through a four-week program that focuses on personal and team accountability, teamwork, and commitment. Each week will include one day of targeted soccer skills and values that will be reinforced the following day in a classroom setting. The program culminates with students attending a Dynamo game with a parent at BBVA Compass Stadium.
