About Us

Soccer Without Borders USA is a 501c3 non-profit organization that uses soccer as a vehicle for positive change, providing newcomer refugee, asylee, and immigrant youth with a toolkit to overcome obstacles to growth, inclusion, and personal success. Our holistic programs provide youth who are traditionally excluded from extracurricular opportunities with a platform for positive engagement, an avenue for personal growth, and a toolkit for a brighter future.


Launched in 2009, SWB Maryland is one of Soccer Without Borders’ most veteran programs. With offices in Baltimore City, the program serves nearly 500 newcomer youth throughout the year in Baltimore City, Baltimore County and Prince George’s County through soccer, education, and community-building activities. Using soccer as a platform, our year-round programming helps newcomer youth develop personally, advance academically, build social capital, gain English language skills, and make healthy choices. SWB Maryland is one of seven Soccer Without Borders locations, which collectively operate under one shared 501(c)(3) status. Founded in 2006, Soccer Without Borders’ work has been recognized locally, nationally, and globally as an effective model for youth development and social change, most recently winning the 2017 FIFA Diversity Award and US Soccer Foundation Impact Award.
