As community leaders and parents look for ways to keep kids out of gangs and away from violence, many are turning to Pedro Carbajal and his championship soccer team for some answers.

I can surely appreciate all that you do. We started our club the very same way in the very same reason in East Palo Alto. Ravenswood Youth Soccer Club started on July 1999 with 4 teams. Now we joined forces with the former AYSO organization and created Ravenswood Youth Athletic Assoc. We grew from 72 to 500 players. Our aim is still in the development of character, charisma and competitive spirit of the player. We want to bring back the pride of our players in their community and also pray that we replace violence with spiritual values. Keep on doing what you do and we can help the future leaders of our communities make a difference. Thank you.
