THE STORY:

Coaches are the real changemakers.

This holiday season, “Play It Forward” by investing in a Soccer Without Borders Boston coach.

Great coaches are teachers, leaders, confidants, mentors, advocates, and role models. Soccer Without Borders’ coaches work tirelessly in these roles, yet they face challenging circumstances to create positive, inclusive learning environments.

Youth at SWB Boston face signifigant economic barriers; 92% qualify for free and reduced lunch.  Our youth face cultural barriers; many feel like outsiders in speech and many female participants in particular are the first in their families to play a sport.  Our youth face social barriers; many lack the access to support systems and newtorks that lead to success.

The right coach creates a team environment where these obstacles can be overcome. The right coach becomes a changemaker in the lives of youth who bravely confront some of the most significant obstacles of their generation. The right coach makes all the difference.

Founded in 2006, Soccer Without Borders uses soccer as a vehicle for positive change. At our nine program sites located across three countries, SWB provides soccer, team-building, civic engagement, cultural exchange and academic support, to youth too often excluded from these opportunities, working specifically with refugees, immigrants, and girls. 

When you Play It Forward, you deepen the impact of SWB and empower a coach to change a young person's life.
