YWCA Youth Soccer Initiative

Over the past 6 years, YWCA’s Youth Soccer Initiative has positively impacted nearly 1,000 youth, many of whom are refugees in the City of Syracuse and Onondaga Nation. Our Initiative is made up of two programs, Soccer for Success and Syracuse City FC (Futbol Community), which together create a continuum that leverages the fun of soccer to engage youth in curricula and activities proven to improve health and wellbeing, provide opportunities for progressive skill development, and meaningfully and intentionally meet youths’ needs. Through this programming, we strive to promote a culture of unity, compassion, collaboration, and excellence while providing opportunities to learn, play, develop healthy lifestyles, and increase pathways to success.
