The heart behind all we do!








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. 









From scholarships, college acceptance, employment, to wherever life leads YOU, be empowered to stay true to YOUR authentic self!

A hands-on, interactive experience for the female student-athlete, age 14-18, who wants to excel and gain an edge in a competitive world.

Resume building opportunities
to gain a competitive edge

Throughout our 10 month experience, you will gain life skills that will set yourself apart on AND off the field. It allows for a full experience that fits into a busy sports schedule and coincides with the school year. 

Yes, 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!













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!

WHAT TO EXPECT?









Leadership is not a title. It is a responsibility.

Leadership is not a title. 
It is a responsibility.

It is about having the CONFIDENCE to show up as your TRUE SELF
and walk AUTHENTICALLY as the person you were created to be. 

"GSW is an amazing organization where I help out communities through my passion for soccer to motivate & empower other girls. It has given me the opportunity to meet inspiring people, learn and define who I am, strengthen my leadership skills, and grow as an individual. Participating in GSW gave me a lot of joy knowing I made an impact on young girls.  We organized and led 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 was priceless and it fills my heart knowing I made a positive impact on their lives." -Sofia 

"Through The Ambassadors for Change Leadership Program, we have watched our daughter strengthen her leadership and communication skills and increase her confidence and empathy towards others. She has enjoyed being a part of the Bay Area Grass Roots Leadership Program, helping young girls from 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. ”-Parent/Jennifer Minnite

"Girls Soccer World Wide has been an amazing experience for me. I am proud to be part of a program 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." -Sierra

"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." -Parent/Jennifer O'Donnell

"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." -Kaamna

"Being an Ambassador for Girls Soccer Worldwide has been an eye opening experience! It 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." -Courtney

"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 Grass Roots Program for the girls in Livermore. 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.”

Yes. Girls Soccer Worldwide™ follows the Alameda County COVID guidelines and has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Currently this includes, but is not limited to: masks worn during check in, accessible hand sanitizer, and temperature taken for each attendee at the start of each workshop. 

Please know we take every precaution to ensure there is minimal 6ft social distancing in place at all times, however, due to the nature of the facilities and an active program with children, social distancing of 6 feet per person is not always possible.

Girls Soccer Worldwide™ continue to adapt as new guidelines are released.   We may revise our procedures at any time based on updated recommended guidance and recommendations issued by public health agencies.  











ARE YOU FOLLOWING COVID GUIDELINES IN YOUR PROGRAM?

WHY IS A 9 MONTH
COMMITMENT REQUIRED?

X

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.

Our Year 1 Ambassador for Change Leadership Program is open to 16 girls during the 2021-2022 season.   We prefer to dive into conversation with a few then pack the room with many to ensure EVERY girl is seen and heard. This allows for the appropriate amount of time for conversation and attention during the entire experience so the benefits of our experience is gained.

GREAT IDEA!!

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.
