Job Summary

About Soccer Without Borders
Using soccer as a hook, our whole-person approach helps newcomer youth develop personally, gain consistent adult mentors, build friendships across cultures and grow in confidence on and off the soccer field. Founded in 2006, the mission of Soccer Without Borders (SWB) is at work at our 4 U.S. programs and 2 international programs, serving youth who hail from more than 50 different countries around the world. While soccer is central, our program model also includes educational support, team-building, civic engagement, and cultural exchange activities. Underpinning our work are our core values of a focus on the whole-person, authenticity and a process-oriented approach.

Launched in 2011, SWB Greeley works with middle and high school students during the school year, and elementary, middle, and high school students in the summer months. Regular SWB programming integrates English Language Development, civic engagement, educational support, cultural exchange, and team building into the three sessions per week throughout the course of each team's season. In addition, SWB partners interested SWB families with families from the greater Greeley community, who then share time together growing in relationship and exchanging their livelihoods, helping each other grow in their knowledge and love for their community.
