Soccer Without Borders Baltimore uses soccer as a vehicle of change to help refugee, immigrant, and asylee students overcome obstacles to growth. We provide year-round soccer programming, combined with English language support, academic enrichment, and mentorship opportunities to our students and their families. We serve middle school and high school youth from a diverse range of countries including the Republic of Congo, Burundi, Eritrea, Syria, Iraq, Honduras, and Nepal.
We would love to have you join our after school programming! Academic coaches (tutors) have the unique opportunity to work one-on-one with our students at two middle schools. This could mean helping with math, social studies, science, or English. Our fall semester runs from September 14 - December 10, and we ask that volunteers commit to at least one day a week (Monday-Thursday) during this time. Academic coaches typically remain on site from 4:30-6:30 (School 1) or 3:00 - 4:30 (School 2) and help our staff ensure that our students are fully engaged in the learning process.
Tutors may also be coaches! If this sounds like something you are interested in, please apply here: https://www.soccerwithoutborders.org/apply-usa
Soccer Without Border (SWB) uses soccer as a vehicle for positive change, providing refugee, asylee, and immigrant youth with a toolkit to overcome obstacles to growth, inclusion, and personal success.
SWB utilizes the global power of soccer to create positive life changes through five key programming areas: soccer play and instruction, off-field lessons and academic tutoring, civic engagement, team building, and cultural exchange. SWB serves middle-school and high-school students. The student-athletes who make up the program have recently arrived to the US from a variety of countries, including but not limited to, Cameroon, Eritrea, Somalia, Rwanda, DRC, Congo, Tanzania, Ethiopia, El Salvador, Mexico, Sudan, Guinea, Iraq, Bhutan, and Nepal. While these young people come from diverse backgrounds, they share a passion for soccer and a genuine interest in and desire to engage with their new surroundings.
