Soccer Without Borders
About the organization
Soccer Without Borders (SWB) is a non-profit organization that uses soccer as a vehicle for positive change, providing underserved youth with a toolkit to overcome obstacles to growth, inclusion, and personal success.
Our vision is to build a more inclusive world through soccer, where all youth have the opportunity to reach their inherent potential. Newcomer youth are one of the most vulnerable populations in the United States today, facing complex barriers to integration, academic success, and leading happy and healthy lives. SWB’s model includes four organizational lenses: access and inclusion, health, youth development, and trauma-informed practices, each representing a body of research that informs our program design. Our programs integrate three pillars of soccer, education, and community, supporting our participants to grow, adjust and be successful.
This position will be responsible for planning and leading implementation of after-school programming at Dundalk Middle School and summer programs at 2 Baltimore County high schools. Programming will include English-integrated soccer practice, community building activities, and homework help. The continued success of this program will depend heavily on the relationships developed between the Coordinator, students, school partners, and families. Additionally, the Program Coordinator will support the organization through administrative and program support roles. We are looking for the best fit for this young program and aim to maximize the strengths of the person in this position.
SWB Maryland is seeking an outgoing, motivated, and organized individual to join our team as the Dundalk Program Coordinator. As a member of the leadership team, the Program Coordinator should be energetic, dynamic, engaging and creative as a leader. While this role will have the support of an AmeriCorps service member and volunteers, the coordinator should be a self-starter, entrepreneurial individual able to take the initiative and be problem solve. Experience working with youth, coaching soccer and able to plan/adapt practice sessions according to age and ability will make a strong applicant. Additionally, the Program Coordinator should be dedicated to creating an inclusive atmosphere for all participants, communicating and implementing team rules and positive culture, and showing an active interest in getting to know all program youth and their families. Lastly, the PC should show a commitment to SWB values, SWB Maryland program priorities, and a belief in the transformative power of soccer.
