Our Ambassador for Change Leadership Program is built on the ART of Self-Leadership.  We focus on empowering FEMALE STUDENT-ATHLETES to rise up, make a difference and become strong leaders in their own communities.

We believe the key to becoming an effective and efficient leader starts from within because it is the person in leadership that ultimately makes the difference. From self-awareness to self-management, impactful leaders put in the work and learn to confidently lead as their authentic selves.  

We believe every girl has a voice that can change the world, starting with YOUR own.  Learn, grow, and walk beside like-minded individuals and be a voice for change.

Our Ambassador for Change Leadership Program was created with the
Female Student-Athlete in mind. 

Throughout our 10 month experience, you will gain life skills that will set yourself apart on AND off the field. This FULL experience fits into a busy sports schedule and coincides with the school year.  We could cram all we have planned into a few weeks but progress takes time and requires a commitment...you will work but you won't feel like it!

WHAT'S INCLUDED?









Our Ambassador for Change Leadership program isn't just a one-year commitment.  We offer a multi-year program that focuses on the leader within, collaborative leadership, to GSW intern opportunities throughout all 4 high school years.













FOR THOSE WANTING MORE

In our Female led monthly workshops, we create a safe environment to dive into conversations around self-awareness and self-discipline, mental health and body image, public speaking and out of the box team building, tangible ways to fascinate the world around you + more...all with the Female Student Athlete in mind.  Monthly workshops are facilitated by professionals in the field of each topic and are held on Sunday evenings to accommodate sports schedules in the Bay Area.


  







Girls Soccer Worldwide™ programs were created around the idea of girls empowering girls and our Ambassadors are the bridge between them all.   Our Grassroots Leadership program is co-developed + co-facilitated by our Ambassadors with the goal of helping young girls, living in underserved areas of our community, believe in their voice, + gain the confidence, courage, and character needed to succeed in life.  What is gained for our Ambassador? Empathy led decision making. An essential life skill needed to succeed.




  







The path to creating change starts with us giving ourselves permission to believe our voice has value and then putting it into practice.  Our year end project is where your passion, your voice, & your gifts align. The perfect way to bring the entire experience together and share it with those around you.  You are worth being celebrated!

"This program has far
exceeded our expectations." 

We are beyond grateful our daughter was chosen to participate in the Girls Soccer Worldwide™ Ambassador for Change Leadership Program. We have been impressed with the structure, guidance, and endless support that GSW has provided our daughter. She has been exposed to curriculum that has allowed her to understand her strengths, her weaknesses, and her leadership style. Through this assessment, she has been able to become a better communicator and leader while being in the the most vulnerable of situations amongst her peers.

"GSW is an amazing organization."

Being an Ambassador I have been able to help out in my community through my passion for soccer to motivate & empower other girls. It have been able to meet inspiring people, learn and define who I am, strengthen my leadership skills, and grow as an individual. It also fills my heart knowing I have been able to make a positive impact on the lives of young girls. We organize and lead in-person workshops where girls could learn about important life skills that will help them grow as strong students and female leaders in their communities. Seeing these girls smile and gain more self-confidence is priceless!

"BEING AN AMBASSADOR FOR GSW WAS AN EYE OPENING EXPERIENCE."

My experience in this program has taught me so much about myself as a public speaker, a teacher, a facilitator, a friend, and a support network for young, impressionable girls that are thirsty for guidance and leadership in their lives in the realms of education and soccer. This program will have a lasting impact on my future and has made me more confident, as I venture into adulthood. I am so thankful to be a part of the Leadership Program for GSW and for all the opportunities it has given me.

"GSW ALIGNS WITH WHAT WE FEEL IS IMPORTANT AND MORALLY RIGHT."

As parents of teenage girls, we strive for them to succeed academically and be empowered to handle difficult situations. GSW has supplemented, reinforced, and instilled in our girls these valuable character traits. GSW has created a curriculum that provides the tools and language for our girls to gain self-confidence and believe in themselves. They come home invigorated, ready to tackle the next challenge at hand. Our girls have also gained awareness of others and the goal of empowering all girls to reach their full potential is ingrained...all life lessons that live with them beyond exposure to GSW.

"I WAS ABLE TO GAIN AMPLE
EXPERIENCE WITH PUBLIC SPEAKING."

Joining the leadership program this year allowed me to focus on strengthening my communicative, leadership, and collaborative skills. I was able to gain ample experience with public speaking in a safe and supportive environment, which allowed me to become confident in using my voice. Additional benefits of the program, such as the guest speakers, provided valuable information ranging from interviewing/resume tips to personal finance, which I have found to be extremely insightful.

"RUN, DON’T WALK TO ENCOURAGE
YOUR DAUGHTER TO APPLY."

I am so grateful for the opportunity to have my daughter participate in GSW. As a student athlete she is disciplined in her approach to her various responsibilities. However, what I have found to be critical in her personal growth is cultivating leadership skills off the field that help to find her purpose and the power of her voice. GSW has been an instrumental part of her personal development by providing frameworks, activities, group seminars and social outreach designed to cultivate future leaders. The Ambassador program is the gold standard in our experience!

THE GSW LEADERSHIP PROGRAM."

Girls Soccer Worldwide™ has been an amazing experience for me. I am proud to be a part of a program that creates a safe learning environment to teach young girls to become the best versions of themselves through education and sports. Volunteering for GSW has given me a chance to learn how to use my unique skills and to teach others how to find theirs and utilize them. GSW is great at giving girls the opportunity to gain a competitive edge in the real world and focus on growth for themselves.

During our daughter's participation in the Girls Soccer Worldwide™ Ambassador for Change Leadership Program, we were able to see her develop stronger leadership and communication skills. We have also seen an increase her confidence and empathy towards others. She has enjoyed the Bay Area Grassroots Program, helping young girls living in underprivileged areas gain confidence, leadership skills, and have fun through group activities. She has bonded with these young girls and we feel strongly that this program can make a difference in their futures.

"I LOVED PLANNING OUR
GRASSROOTS WORKSHOPS."

As a member of the Ambassadors for Change Leadership Program I can confidently say that I have learned and been able to practice important life skills in a safe and inclusive environment to better prepare me for my future. I personally loved planning the Grassroots Program for the girls in the Tri-Valley. I looked forward to every Friday we held a workshop because I knew I was going to have an impact on the life of a young female athlete and gain new perspective on my community.

"MY DAUGHTER HAS GAINED A WORLDVIEW PERSPECTIVE."

GSW has a been a wonderful organization for my daughter to be a part of. Through GSW my daughter has gained valuable leadership skills and confidence which I know will carry over to other aspects of her life in the future. She’s also gained a worldview perspective on some of the trials and tribulations young girls face and ways to empower those young girls to live a fuller life. To put it plainly, the givers (our GSW girls) end up being the receivers of some of life’s most valuable gifts life has to offer.

DID YOU KNOW?

100% of our 2021-2022 Ambassadors who were not moving out of the Bay Area to attend college, were excited to continue in our multi year program. They enjoyed the experience and gained skills beyond their expectations leading them to continue their development as a leader with Girls Soccer Worldwide™.

That's a fact!

ARE YOU FOLLOWING COVID GUIDELINES IN YOUR PROGRAM?

There are 2 parts to this answer...

Our 10 month program allows for a full experience to fit within the busy schedule of a Female Student Athlete that coincides with the school year. When surveyed, majority of Ambassadors prefer this schedule to a week-long summit allowing time to process information, stay connected, and enjoy a full experience over time. Most workshops are planned for Sunday evenings to accommodate sports schedules.  

Most importantly, in regards to the commitment, our program was created around the idea of Girls empowering girls.  It is a team effort and to gain the best results, you need to be present. Everyone holds a key piece to the overall success of each conversation and project. 

To 'COMPLETE' our program and gain your resume building experience, attendance is key.  However, we understand life happens and have guidelines in place that allow for unexpected situations to take place.

This allows for the appropriate amount of time for conversation and attention during the entire experience so the benefits of our experience is gained.

There are several ways to raise money and we would love to help you get started. We suggest filling out an application and if accepted into our program we can help you come up with a plan. We are happy to help you create a script and materials to send to friends and family.

Idea to get you started NOW:  
Most effective impact is a personal handwritten letter sharing your why, what you will gain, a little about the girls you will be helping through our Grassroots Leadership Program, and your passion for GSW!

It can also be a tax deduction for some gifting, however, that is a conversation for their tax expert.
