Mission Statement

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.

Description

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.
