Play Soccer at Powell Park with Refugee Kids! (age 16+) *Hands On*

Hands On Managed projects offer you an opportunity to join a group of volunteers on a done-in-a-day project led by a Hands On Volunteer Leader

Have you been itching to get outside and play some games this summer? Come join in on the fun with an energetic group of refugee children from East Africa, Burma and Nepal for an evening of pick-up soccer! The kids are learning how to speak, read and write English, but it’s not easy. Many of them are great soccer players, and even the smaller ones are eager to play.

4 Worlds United Soccer Alliance is a local nonprofit that works to bridge the gap between first and fourth world children by bringing them together on the soccer field. What is the “fourth world?” When third world people are living in a first world country, there are numerous barriers keeping them from integrating and interacting with the culture around them. Language, literacy, poverty, and other cultural elements can alienate a newcomer, denying them the chance to improve their lives with the advantages provided in the new world around them. This creates a unique living situation where the first and third worlds meet but don’t merge, this makes the fourth world. To learn more, check out our website: www.4worldsunited.org

Summer Soccer at Powell Park will be every Monday until the middle of August. No special soccer skills are needed, just energy, a positive attitude, and comfortable clothing that you can run in. Sign up below and bring your enthusiasm and energy to this fun-filled summer activity! If you would like to participate each Monday, please sign up for each week.
