SOCCER WITHOUT BORDERS

Playing for change

Our mission is to use soccer as a vehicle for positive change, providing underserved youth with a toolkit to overcome obstacles to growth, inclusion, and personal success.

SWB is unique in that it has implemented programs in both the US and internationally. This institutional knowledge, gained through hundreds of conversations and lessons from community members, coaches, leaders, youth, and parents representing 40+ countries across 7 US cities and 10 international locations has enabled SWB to build a program model that is adaptable across locations, yet consistent in its framework.  

SWB USA creates positive team communities for newcomer refugee, asylee and immigrant youth. Nearly 80,000 refugees and 500,000 immigrants arrive in the US annually, seeking peace and a chance for a better future (CDC). Newcomer youth are one of the most vulnerable populations in the US. Not only are these youth navigating a new culture and language, their often traumatic backgrounds create significant barriers to traditional models of academic and social “success.”

Internationally, our programs have placed a particular emphasis on engaging girls. Just 10% of the world's soccer players are girls and women (FIFA), lessening the opportunity for girls to reap the many benefits associated with team sports, including improved mental and physical health, better academic performance, and healthier sexual choices. SWB creates team environments and safe spaces where girls can reach their goals on the field and off.
