Soccer for Social Change

EST. 2009

WHAT WE DO

Foster a powerful community, built around soccer, that includes individuals affected by homelessness, displacement, and conflict, as well as coaches, mentors, volunteers, and community partners.


Use a team platform and our soccer-based curriculum to provide a space for players to develop skills that bridge soccer, the street, and life – ultimately aiming to support our players in their goals regarding jobs, education, housing, health and restored relationships.
