More than just soccer,  our goal is to use soccer as a tool to help refugee and immigrant youth navigate life in effective and responsible ways. We want to promote educational success and connections with community members.

Soccer allows the players to build connections with each other and community volunteers during games, practice, car rides home, player volunteer opportunities and team celebrations.

Academic

Excellence

Our players are required to sign a contract and agree to have a good academic and behavioral record in school.  We also encourage our players to attend after school academic programs for English Language Learners at Hillside JH and Borah HS.  This is possible through our partnership with Cathedral of the Rockies, Cavalry Chapel, Congregation Ahavath Beth Israel and Boise Parks & Recreation.

 

Volunteering

Teens that volunteer are exposed to a diverse experience, expanding their perspectives of Boise and the rest of the world. We are continually looking for player volunteer opportunities that will enhance the experience of our players and help them engage in our community.

Mentorship

Player and community member connections start over the game of soccer and grow into a mentoring relationship.  Mentors have the chance to share their experience with school-age, New Americans and their families.
