My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Soccer Without Borders, Boston, MA, USA
I spent a year (2011-2012) volunteering for SWB in Nicaragua. When I look back, it is still one of the most impactful years of my life. There were lots of ups and downs and very scary moments, but I would do it all again in a heartbeat. It was a wonderful opportunity to empower girls in the community and see them grow in soccer and life. I continue to follow what is happening with the program down there, and I am very happy to hear of their continued efforts in providing quality education for the girls. They are also providing them with opportunities to make their own way in this life and fulfill their dreams. SWB taught me a lot about life and helping others. I am happy to say that I am continuing to help youth in a full-time capacity and using the tools I gained from SWB to guide my efforts.
