Program Partners


The US Soccer Foundation supports coaching, management, and transportation in SWB USA programs .




FIFA's Football for Hope program provides support to SWB USA leadership to improve the quality and sustainability of programs.







The Coach Across America program by Up2Us provides training, administrative, and financial support for coaches at four SWB programs across the US.




Positive Tracks is a national youth-centric nonprofit for movers and shakers.  Our mission: to help Generation Next get active and give back using the global power of sport.  We turn youth athletic activity into doubled dollars for multiple charity partners. The Positive Tracks Program plugs into the SWB Ambassador Program to match fundraising efforts of ages 23 or under, encouraging young people to use their own sweat to support Soccer Without Borders.  Best news is: every dollar raised by youth Ambassadors and matched by Positive Tracks goes to Soccer Without Borders; and, in turn, to the international populations and territories served by Soccer Without Borders. SWB and Positive Tracks collaborate to bring the Ambassadors Program to youth across the United States, supporting 50 Ambassador Events in 2014.
