About Us

Play for Life International uses sport to engage and empower at-risk youth in underserved areas of the U.S. and abroad. PFLI believes in the transforming power of sport to uplift, connect, and build peace. Through our programs, we facilitate international athletic exchanges, run athletics clinics, fund, organize, and oversee field and playing surface construction, and coordinate equipment donation to our target areas. Using the convening power of sport, we reinforce our commonalities across culture, gender, and borders while helping children in our programs build self-esteem, foster respect and tolerance, and grow a sense of community.

Through these concerted efforts, we believe we cannot only change a moment, we can change the game.
