This year, Soccer Without Borders’ work to create belonging, advance equity, and promote healthy lifestyles has all been made possible by our community. Our staff is going above and beyond to creatively strengthen community cohesion and social connection, from food drop offs, to mobile graduations, to team events, and more. The SWB community goes beyond youth participants and coaches, it includes families, volunteers, supporters, staff, and friends coming together to strengthen our collective resiliency. Listen to our coaches’ firsthand accounts of these experiences.
Each week of the 2020 Play it Forward campaign will feature a different way in which Soccer Without Borders is going beyond the pitch to ensure the safety and well-being of our participants. Be sure to visit our Facebook and Instagram @soccerwoborders for daily stories of connection and community. Listen to our coaches’ firsthand accounts of their experiences of building community during Covid-19.
