My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Soccer Without Borders, Boston, MA, USA
I started volunteering with SWB Oakland's U14 boys team in the fall of 2017, just after I relocated to the Bay Area. I wanted to get involved with the community, serve as a mentor, and have fun playing soccer! Over the past year, I've helped the team on game days, driving kids to the field, bringing snacks, and being an adult friend and mentor.
I started with high expectations, but never anticipated the amazing kinship, gratitude, and respect I would develop while serving in the program. The kids involved with SWB are some of the hardest working, courageous, and funniest people I've met in my life, and it has been an honor to play with them, mentor them, and grow with them over the past year. The SWB staff is equally as amazing. They are passionate, devoted, and truly care about the kids in the program. I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to work with this awesome group of people, big and small, and I'm looking forward to helping for many seasons to come!
