Soccer Without Borders (SWB) was born of a vision for a more inclusive and equitable world, where all youth have the opportunity to reach their inherent potential. Established in 2006 with a mission to use soccer as a vehicle for positive change, SWB provides under-served youth with a toolkit to overcome obstacles to growth, inclusion, and personal success. SWB implements year-round programming at 42 sites across five U.S. states, Nicaragua, and Uganda – including 79 teams, 44 camps, 16 league seasons, and over 100 community events. Leveraging the skilled work of over 60 full and part-time staff, more than 100 youth leaders, and engaging over 250 volunteers annually, SWB’s program design deliberately addresses barriers that typically leave marginalized youth excluded.
