When building an SWB program, we value all voices, particularly those of youth and members of the communities we serve.
We believe in a whole-person approach to youth development. Our programs help young people come into a greater understanding of their bodies, minds, and voices.
We believe that investing in a quality process is often more important than the outcome itself. To that end, SWB leadership, participants and families commit to uphold process-oriented values that create a culture of acceptance, an inclusive environment, and supported progress toward goals.
These values are:
- The inherent potential and gifts of all young people
- Honesty and authenticity in speech and action
- All learners as teachers and all teachers as learners
- Openness to all perspectives, voices, and people
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.
