The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Soccer Without Borders uses soccer as a vehicle of change to help refugee, immigrant, and asylee students overcome obstacles to growth, inclusion, and personal success. 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, El Salvador, and Nepal.
We would love to have you join our after team!
