Design FC is an afterschool program launched by Swarthmore College grad Omri Gal. With help from a grant from the Lang Center for Civic & Social Responsibility, Omri Gal ’19 began Design FC, an after-school program in partnership with the U.S. Soccer Foundation that teaches fifth- and sixth-grade students at Stetser Elementary in Chester, Pa., on creative thinking and self expression through design.
By chance, Gal was connected with Warren Creavalle, a midfielder for the Philadelphia Union professional soccer team based in Chester, who is also a designer with his own clothing label. Creavalle attended after school sessions almost every week, and became an integral part of Design FC.
Design FC works in partnership with Chester-Upland Youth Soccer.
