GRS rocks! As Director of Programming and Training for the U.S. Peace Corps in South Africa, I have had the priveledge to work with the wonderful and committed staff of GRS for the past two years. Our partnerships have supported numerous Volunteers in the field, as well as their community counterparts, and thousands of youth beneficiaries throughout South Africa. GRS's PC Skillz package is an off-the-shelf evidence based intervention that can be implemented by Volunteers and Counterparts with minimal training and support, and with fantastic results. I don't know anyone who leaves an interaction with GRS who doesn't want to shout out a kilo in support of GRS. Thanks for all that you do!

I've had the pleasure to work with Grassroot Soccer through one of their partner programs in the Dominican Republic. The interactive methodology used in the curriculum is one of the greatest factors for the program's success. I have extensive experience working with children and youth in educational setting, and Grassroot Soccer curriculum is one of the best ways to both engage students and help them learn how to prevent HIV/AIDS. I've watched many of our young students grow from being participants, to being leaders and coaches in the program, teaching others the same lessons that helped transform their lives. The Grassroot Soccer team is a joy to work with. They are efficient, visionary, creative, evidence-based and, although they've seen significant growth, they still maintain that grassroots feel.

Grassroot Soccer (GRS) has worked as a partner with the organizaiton I work with for the last two years. The entire partnership has been hugley successful. In all of our work together, they continuously put the beneficiaries first and put a high emphasis on quality. This results in projects that are succesful because there is local support, excitement by beneficiaries, and tangible outcomes for participants. GRS is an organization that prides itself as evidence-based, with a strong culture of monitoring and evaluation that guarantees top-tier programming and training. The people who work at GRS are extremely responsive and supportive of our two organizations' mutual goals and understanding of the differences between them. I would readily suggest working with this organization (as a partner, beneficiary, or donor) to anyone that is interested in HIV/AIDS, sports for development, and internationl devleopment issues.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have them working in more countries around the world, and have them develop curiculums for other sports in addition to soccer.

What impresses most about GrassRoot Soccer is the organization's seamless integration of the most important aspects of education, behavior change, capacity-building and project management into one memorable and effective methodology and package. Every detail of their work is considered, piloted and reviewed with stakeholders through a participative and evidence-based approach. Behind the solid methodology lies a team of individuals who make things happen - I have been nothing short of impressed in each and every interaction with this crackerjack team. They have fun, and they can demonstrate their impact. One big Ethiopian "kee-low" for this fantastic organization.

Positive Tracks works with Grassroot Soccer as a partner who helps to support youth fundraising efforts of GRS youth 3v3 Soccer Tournaments across the USA. On top of their global work with AIDS/HIV Prevention, GRS is a highly respected leader in the field of Sports-Based Youth Development. Their entire staff is amazingly collaborative, forward thinking, and very willing to share excellent GRS models/systems with other charities like Positive Tracks and its partners. GRS has developed and launched very successful (and global) peer-to-peer engagement strategies and mentoring programs over several years time to continually inspire tremendous passion and commitment from volunteers, partners, and staff. They are a savvy, capable, particularly generous organization, and bring a contagious spirit of fun to helping the world. Positive Tracks is also deeply impressed with GRS tracking systems, growth strategies, and measurement of tangible outcomes. Positive Tracks is beyond thrilled to be working with GRS, and have learned a great deal from this organization.

GRS' programs provide kids with a chance to think for themselves and to engage with each other in meaningful dialogue about the massive pressures they face... all in a supported environment. Beyond the initial success of the program, GRS has truly been results-driven and open to criticism and adaptation since day one--they're really doing things the right way.

Since its inception, Grassroot Soccer has pushed the envelop in results-based health education. This is evident now by their 2012-2013 randomized control trial with health outcomes. On the execution level, Grassroot Soccer has people and processes to provide education tools to make a tremendous impact. They are leading by example amongst international non-profit organizations.

A truly cutting edge and innovative organization, GRS focuses on results. They apply a refreshing approach to public health and HIV prevention, using the powerful game of soccer to catalyze youth as community changemakers. The dynamic and driven GRS team views their work through a critical lens at all levels -- Coaches educating youth are continually evaluating their impact in the field while senior leadership ensures the programming is based on the latest research developments in HIV prevention. For these reasons alone, GRS is truly a leader in the HIV prevention field!
