Soccer Without Borders is proud to announce that it has received a $5,000 grant from the Finish Line Youth Foundation to support its Boston, Massachusetts program.
Soccer Without Borders uses soccer as a vehicle for positive change in the lives of newcomer refugee, immigrant and asylee youth. Leveraging the power of an inclusive team environment, youth at SWB Boston gain consistent mentors, lasting friendships and key skills that help that succeed on and off the soccer field. This grant from the Finish Line Youth Foundation will support the program’s four-month winter indoor season.
“We are thrilled to have the support of the Finish Line Youth Foundation to support our winter season for the second consecutive year. This grant allows us to offer youth a winter indoor season, which bridges the gap between our fall and spring outdoor seasons allowing youth and coaches the consistency needed to form
trusting relationships that contribute to learning on and off the field, “ said Lindsey Whitford, Director of SWB Boston.
