SOCCER WITHOUT BORDERS - Baltimore
SOCCER WITHOUT BORDERS - Baltimore emerged in 2009 to provide opportunities to the city’s burgeoning refugee population through soccer-based programming that encourages healthy living while developing English-language abilities, teamwork, academic success, and cross-cultural skills. While these young people come from diverse backgrounds, they share a passion for soccer and a genuine interest in and desire to engage with their new surroundings.
Few of these kids had ever played organized soccer or had their own equipment or proper coaching. In addition to regular programming, participants have the opportunity to enjoy special events such as college visits, summer camp, conferences and trainings, and outings to watch college and professional soccer games.
