Maybe somebody here knows, the AIA bylaws are pretty confusing. I can't figure this out because the rules aren't clear to me.
A family friend of mine is involved not technically with foster care, it's some sort of legal grey area between that and full on adoption. Anyway it's specifically for refugee children from other countries. They live somewhere in kinda central/east north Phoenix. Recently one of her children arrived, and I occasionally come by for social reasons, she's a non profit organization employee who quit teaching. Anyway I met her newest child and I was really surprised. He looks like a grown man but is only 15. He came from the Central African Republic as a refugee. I'm 6'1 and this kid, well I had to look up at. Since my friend has no clue about sports, and knows that I used to coach soccer, which is popular there, she asked me to see about it. But after seeing this kid, and I use that term loosely since he's physically a grown adult, I think he might enjoy American football too. None of her other kids she has gotten have ever showed an interest in sports, so he's kind of the first.
The problem is, for right now anyway, he's home schooled. She wanted to send him to a local charter school because of the academics and the smaller classes and doesn't think it'd be a good idea to send him to a large high school like Camelback or Arcadia because it might be too much. I agree with her that transitioning him into our educational system is probably the best for him to succeed.
I think that it's too late to get him to play football this year, since the season is halfway over and I'm 99.99% sure he's never played or even seen a game. He does know his soccer though. Favorite team is Barcelona FC though Anyway the charter school does not have football, and I wasn't sure how something like this would work, because he's not technically enrolled in a school now. All of his records are in order, though I can't read French which his documents appear to be mostly in.
So does anybody know the protocol for something like this? Even if he hates football or never plays, hopefully he'd find some happiness playing soccer.
