 Expression of community empowerment 

Soccer can change lives and transform communities for the better. Organized with leadership development at its core, soccer equips the young people with life and leadership skills to make a change in their communities. Many have faced a life of hardship, but have excelled in social responsibility and community engagement. Soccer can change lives and transform communities for the better.

 Leveraging the playing field: how soccer can promote leadership development. 

New leaders are emerging with soccer as a catalyst for responsibility, leadership development and social change. Soccer is more than just a game and a multi-billion dollar industry, there is arguably no social phenomenon with the same power to inspire, unite and connect as soccer. As a global language, soccer can provide an incredibly effective and cost-efficient way to engage young people in communities with scarce resources.
