Getting Girls in the Game- Soccer Without Borders-SD


Soccer Without Borders believes in the potential of soccer to make change. The organization uses soccer as a vehicle for positive change, providing under-served youth with a toolkit to overcome obstacles to growth, inclusion and personal success.

Programs help young people come into a greater understanding of their bodies, minds and voices. Soccer Without Borders began programming in 2006 to address three critical issues facing young people in underserved communities throughout the world:

1. A lack of safe spaces where young people feel cared for, have a voice and can experience the joy of sport.

2. A lack of opportunity for youth to actively explore social issues and community challenges.

3. A lack of social capital and access to potential opportunities for education, employment and personal growth.

Across the world, just 10 percent of soccer players are female. In underserved regions, that number is as low as 3 percent. Soccer Without Borders directly addresses cultural, economic, and social barriers to girls' participation, providing a safe and inclusive space for girls to get in the game.

A team can be the most powerful change agent in a girl's development, proven to inspire healthy choices regarding drugs, sex, alcohol, academics, and nutrition. Learn more about how Soccer Without Borders uses a team-based model to empower girls through soccer, education, and skill-building, unlocking their potential and setting a new norm.
