Empowering Girls to Succeed
On and Off the Field

Soccer helps kids develop healthy habits and critical life skills. Unfortunately, many kids in underserved communities, especially girls, lack the resources, access and encouragement to reap the rewards. That's why we created United for Girls as part of our larger effort to make soccer everyone's game.

Together with our partners, we will engage 100,000 girls annually in our programs and double the number of females who lead them as coach-mentors.
