Summer Programs 2019

We design international, soccer-themed adventures to incredible destinations that leave a legacy of lasting impact.

Every transformational third half experience uses soccer to create an authentic, level playing field and generates tangible social impact for your host community.

We live in a divided, unequal world. The gap between rich and poor is widening and intolerance and hatred are on the rise. We believe that everyone has a part to play in creating a more equal, tolerant and compassionate society for future generations.

By experiencing global issues through the eyes of the people they directly affect, you’ll gain a better understanding of the challenges facing young people around the world and how we can solve them together. Changing the world is a team sport.

Soccer is often called ‘the world’s only common language’. According to FIFA, world soccer’s governing body, there are more than 3.5 billion soccer players and fans around the world – that’s half the population of planet Earth.

That makes soccer a great way to see the world and to understand different cultures and societies. We use soccer to create a ‘level playing field’ between you and your hosts. By seeing how they experience soccer, you’ll understand how they experience life, whether it’s watching a game with a family in a Brazilian favela, playing pick up on the streets of Delhi or attending a pro soccer match with thousands of local fans.

It doesn’t matter if you’re an experienced player or you never kicked a ball in your life. Our experiences use soccer as an immersive tool to help you interact with and understand your hosts.

Every third half experience is a transformative, educational journey of dynamic and high-growth activities

SOCCER – Activities that allow you to experience the power of the game known as ‘the world’s common language’, whether you’re a lifelong fan or an absolute beginner.

CULTURE– Activities that allow you to experience what life is like for people in your host community and to sample the unique flavor of your destination.

EDUCATION – Activities that focus on 21st Century learning skills like grit, initiative, and critical thinking through a blend of collaborative workshops and hands-on experiences with local people.

Join a team of like-minded travellers on one of our eight-day adventures in Summer 2019 and help change the lives of underserved youth through the power of the beautiful game.
