Evidence of Program's Success

There is no better testament to our success than the words from our youth:

"Soccer Without Borders has been a guide to keep me going and going to reach my goals and my dreams".

"It has been amazing to have a scholarship because I have improved my grades, and I feel I am a better student. I push my limits to be better every single day. There are no barriers".

"My soccer program, they always support me, everywhere. my personal life, on the field, academically - they're always here".

"When my son first entered SWB, he didn't like to play soccer and he had a lot of behavior problems- always acting out. He has been in the program for 3 years now, loves to play soccer, his behavior has improved a lot at home, and he has lost weight".

"It's why I know English now, because when I started to play, I didn't really speak English at all. But playing with them, being the only Spanish speaker, it helped me learn English because I had to talk to them".
