My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Soccer Without Borders, Boston, MA, USA
I worked as an Intern for the National Office and the East Boston office this past summer. At the National Office I worked on several projects to support coaches and volunteers at all offices. At the East Boston office I was lucky enough to work on programming-related projects as well as on the field with HS girls and younger age groups too. Working with SWB showed me firsthand the importance and impact of using sport as a vehicle for positive social change and of having role models. I learned individuals' stories in a non-intrusive soccer context. SWB fosters relationships between teammates, youth and adults, and within the community in a way I didn't know was possible.
