Review for Soccer Without Borders, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Dan O'Connor -- Coach and volunteer with Soccer Without Borders for several years.

As a lifelong soccer player & fan with an interest in international relations, critical issues, immigration, and humanitarian affairs, I was very lucky to stumble upon Soccer Without Borders. I know very well from my own life experience the way in which playing on a team can change lives, and so I am very happy to volunteer with SWB and give that opportunity back to people in my community. I have only ever participated in the Boston program (this is my home) but I have heard great things about the other national chapters as well. In the past few years, I have assistant-coached elementary, middle school, and high school boys, as well as the middle school girls.

Great people, responsible organization, deserving participants, and loads and loads of fun. I am so happy to be involved as a volunteer and may one day look to increase my participation in the organization.
