THE STORY:

Coaches are the real changemakers.

This holiday season, “Play It Forward” and empower a Soccer Without Borders coach to change a young person's life. 

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 our SWB Uganda program face significant economic barriers; most lack the resources to attend school. 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 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. SWB Uganda provides soccer, team-building, civic engagement, off-field lessons, and cultural exchange, to youth too often excluded from these opportunities, working specifically with urban refugees from Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Burundi, Somalia, and Sudan. 

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

In tribute to my big sister Isabel Julian, one of the best female coaches I know and respect. Learned everything from her, and would not be the person I am, nor would I have been the athlete I was without her. Thank you. 7 years ago
