WE BELIEVE

EVERY GIRL

has a voice that can change the world, starting with her own.

With our 'pay to play' system in the US, many girls in underserved communities don't have access to sports. Through our Grassroots Leadership Program we bring the sport to them where they are at, creating opportunities to play and gain leadership skills needed to succeed in life.   

Our goals are centered around providing girls living in underserved communities with life skills during a time of great influence and development. We create opportunities, on AND off the field, for girls 10-12 years of age to gain the confidence, courage, and character that can be lost at a young, adolescent age. 

We focus on what is relevant now, while planting the seeds for our leaders of tomorrow.  
 

WE BELIEVE

EVERY GIRL

"WE BELIEVE by creating opportunities on AND off the field, the concept of a glass ceiling with limited dreams can be replaced with unlimited possibilities."




Girls Soccer Worldwide™ was created around the idea of Girls Empowering Girls.



In our hands-on, interactive after-school program we use sports and leadership workshops as a vehicle for social and emotional learning.  Workshops are co-developed and co-facilitated by our Ambassador for Change Leaders who are committed to a 10 month Leadership program of their own that prepares them for this entire experience.  There is magic seeing the power that comes from opportunities when Girls Empower Girls.

"I raise up my voice — not so I can shout but so that those without a voice can be heard. We cannot succeed when half of us are held back."

Girls Soccer Worldwide™ is a 501c3 non-profit.  We are a preventative program providing girls with the necessary tools before they are faced with decision making rather than only reacting to the consequences of a decision already made.

The SHORT-TERM goals in our Grassroots Program are to help young girls believe in their voice and gain the confidence, courage, and character that can be lost at a young, adolescent age.

Our LONG-TERM goal are to see girls encouraged to believe in the possibility of their dreams, want to continue on a path of long-term education, and develop into a stronger version of their future selves.

We strive to develop future leaders by focusing on what is relevant for them today, while planting the seeds for tomorrow.

First and foremost, our #1 goal is to have FUN so every workshop is created with that in mind!  Right now more than ever, our girls need to be active and engaged in positive conversation and that is what we have set out to do in our 4-week series.  Each activity will be hands-on and centered about empowering messages led by our Bay Area Ambassador for Change Leaders.

Each workshop consists of a 25 minute soccer workshop + a 25 minute leadership workshop that both focus on one social & emotional skill each week.  These topics vary from good decision making, building healthy relationships, self-awareness, self-management,  and social awareness.  

To be play safe, please wear your sneakers, bring your own water and soccer ball . If you don't have a soccer ball, don't worry we have one for you to use!

Masks are not required to be worn during outdoor sports.  However, if you prefer for your daughter to wear one during our workshops please provide one for her.  Please keep in mind, during physical activity it is important your child has proper access to fresh air and we will encourage her to step into an open space to allow this to take place if we feel it is necessary.  Your child's safety is always our #1 concern.

In 2016, Girls Soccer Worldwide set out to create opportunities for girls internationally to have access to an equal playing field, which doesn't exist in most areas outside of the US.  Since then we have become a voice for the hidden voice in many communities, young girls.

FORWARD THINKING: Studies show with the proper resources, women have the power to become an agent of change creating impact where it matters most.  Women thrive and invest back in their own communities empowering other women around them to do the same. When women are given opportunities to gain confidence, courage, and character an entire community rises up with it. 

Imagine a world where girls were given the tools succeed at a much younger age, change starts today.  That is what we have set out to do...one girl at a time!

This is a crucial time in the brain development and social/emotional learning for girls specifically. Our goals are centered around providing girls with life skills during this time of great influence.


“A girl’s relationships, intimacies, sports activities, art and musical activities, as well as academic learning during the ten-to-twelve period have a great likelihood of sticking or at least reappearing later in her life as an adult because of their interconnection with the massive brain growth."  -Micheal Gurin- The Wonder of Girls
