Soccer Silicon Valley Community Foundation is pleased to welcome children and families from IPSTP as their guests in the SSV Kidzone for the San Jose Earthquakes match on April 5, 2015 at Avaya Stadium versus Real Salt Lake.

"The Soccer Silicon Valley Community Foundation, in partnership with the San Jose Earthquakes, has set up a program to bring deserving kids to every Earthquakes home game in the SSV Kidzone," says SSV Kidzone Chair Lloyd Danon. "Because of the deserving youth that IPSTP serves, we selected them to receive tickets for free admission to this game." The SSV Kidzone has hosted over 5000 children and families since its inception.

"We are very excited to be working with the team's fans through the Soccer Silicon Valley Community Foundation on the SSV Kidzone," says Earthquakes President Dave Kaval. "We are pleased with the choice of IPSTP as a deserving program for this partnership."

About Independent Peer Socialization Training Program (IPSTP):
IPSTP is an after-school skills training program which meets from 2:30 until 5:00 p.m., five days per week as well as extended hours on some school vacation days. The main goal of the program is to give developmentally disabled clients an opportunity to interact with their non-handicapped peers for the purpose of modeling and learning age-appropriate skills and behavior. To this end, specific, measurable, time-limited goals and objectives are designed for each client in order to pinpoint and address specific deficiencies. Emphasis is placed on the acquisition of social and independent living skills. For more information please visit www.ipstp.org.
