Are you looking for a fun and rewarding volunteer opportunity? Do you like kids and/or playing soccer?? Volunteer with Soccer Without Borders! This volunteer opportunity is VERY flexible, and we want to work with you to meet your scheduling needs. We are looking for volunteers to help lead Social and Emotional learning circles with middle school and high school boys and girls. No experience with social and emotional learning is required! We have both virtual and in-person (safely socially distant) opportunities available, depending on the status of the COVID-19 pandemic. The sessions typically consist of a 30 to 45 minute lesson (we will provide lesson plans and training) then some soccer scrimmage time at the end, but we will make accommodations for virtual sessions if necessary. The circles will take place once per week (any day you choose, Monday - Thursday) usually around 4:30 to 6ish for about 8 weeks in the spring. These session are SO MUCH FUN, and you'll really get a chance to know the kids in a fun, nonjudgemental, nonstressful environment. Please reach out to me, Anna Peeler at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any interest. Thanks!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About SOCCER WITHOUT BORDERS
3700 Eastern Ave, Baltimore, MD 21224, US
The Soccer Without Borders mission is to use soccer as a vehicle for positive change, providing under-served youth with a toolkit to overcome obstacles to growth, inclusion, and personal success. SWB Baltimore provides soccer coaching, educational support, and a safe and inclusive community for immigrant and refugee children in the Baltimore area.
In the past year, SWB has worked directly with 2800 youth from 75 countries across our domestic and international programs. Additionally, SWB engaged nearly 5,000 thousand additional youth through our leagues, clinics, tournaments, and bridge-building events. SWB’s mission of facilitating growth, inclusion and personal success for underserved youth is made possible by the quantity of direct hours invested at our programs (average core participants spend 10-15 hours/week with SWB), and our investment over time. 76% of youth returned to SWB from last year to this year, a retention rate that continued even into the teen years, when 70% of youth in the US drop out of organized sport.
