THE STORY:

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 in the SWB Oakland program are English Language Learners who come from more than 25 countries and speak over 20 languages. Our youth face significant economic barriers; many are forced to hold jobs in addition to their studies. Our youth face political barriers; many have been displaced from their home countries. Our youth face cultural barriers; many feel like outsiders in their speech, dress, and actions. Our youth face social barriers; many lack the access to support systems and networks that lead to success.

The coaches at SWB Oakland create a team environment where these obstacles can be overcome. They become changemakers in the lives of youth who bravely confront some of the most significant obstacles of their generation.  For the participants on all five of our SWB Oakland teams, the right coach makes all the difference. 

Founded in 2006, Soccer Without Borders uses soccer as a vehicle for positive change. SWB Oakland provides soccer, team-building, civic engagement, cultural exchange and academic support, to youth too often excluded from these opportunities, working specifically with newcomer refugee and immigrant youth. 

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