Review for Soccer Without Borders, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've had the wonderful opportunity to work as a Fellow at Soccer Without Borders in Baltimore this summer, and I have loved every second of it. My experience thus far has been eye-opening, heart-warming, and most of all, inspiring. The SWB community is is incredibly welcoming and connecting with the students has been very rewarding. SWB very thoughtfully uses soccer as a tool to teach these kids the importance of respect, inclusivity, compassion, and leadership. I have loved witnessing some of the students grow in their English skills and watching their personalities blossom just in the few months that I have known them. This opportunity has also provided me with a lot of knowledge as to what the process looks like for refugee/asylee/immigrant families upon their arrival, and this has allowed me to be a great source of information for any other newcomer families I know who are in need of assistance. SWB and all of the students here have inspired me tremendously, and I am grateful for the experiences I have had here!
