The Major League Soccer (MLS) team Houston Dynamo FC and Hess Corporation announced on April 14th a partnership to provide a free soccer and education Summer program for local students in underserved communities. The program includes an awards system that recognizes outstanding local students with tickets and in-game experiences. In addition, Hess has been named official Oil and Gas Partner of Houston Dynamo FC, the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) team Houston Dash and Dynamo Charities (non-profit arm of the Houston Dynamo Football Club).

The ‘Houston Dynamo FC’ stated that Hess will sponsor a five-week Learn and Play summer program with Dynamo Charities for 50 children in the Third Ward neighborhoods that features soccer programing led by coaches from the Dynamo Youth Programs. Participants will learn about the science of sports and receive a free ticket to either a Dynamo or Dash game.

The Houston Dynamo FC is an American professional soccer club based in Houston (US). The Dynamo competes in Major League Soccer (MLS) as a member of the Western Conference.

The 22,039-capacity PNC Stadium is an American multipurpose stadium located in Houston, Texas (US) that is home to Houston Dynamo FC, a Major League Soccer club, the Houston Dash of the National Women’s Soccer League and Texas Southern Tigers football.

The Hess Corporation is an American global independent energy company involved in the exploration and production of crude oil and natural gas. It was formed by the merger of Hess Oil and Chemical and Amerada Petroleum in 1968.

Said Houston Dynamo FC President John Walker, “Our partnership with Hess allows us to develop a deeper and more meaningful connection with our neighbors in the Third Ward. We value partnerships such as this one, as they provide much-needed care and attention to underserved communities throughout Houston.”

The ‘Houston Dynamo FC’ further stated that the two organizations are also launching a new annual awards program called the ‘Learning for Life Achievement Awards’ to celebrate students from each of the 22 schools in the Second Ward, Magnolia Park and Third Ward neighborhoods that Hess supports for outstanding academic achievement, overcoming hardships, community service, and strength of character and achievements.

Stated Greg Hill, President and Chief Operating Officer (COO), Hess Corporation, “Our company has a proud history of social investment programs that make a positive and lasting impact on the communities where we operate. This new partnership with the Dynamo strengthens our Hess Learning for Life education program by providing children in our neighborhood with fun, engaging opportunities to learn, grow and be inspired by world-class professionals from our organizations.”

Each student honoree will be invited to a ‘Learning for Life’ Achievement Awards dinner jointly hosted by Dynamo Charities and Hess. As a reward for their hard work and commitment to learning, they will receive four tickets to the regular season match of their choice and get recognized on screen.
