360 Sports and Education Program

When faced with poverty, children receiving a proper education is often set aside and girls, more often than not, are first to lose this opportunity. They can be forced to stay home and work, leaving them with little to no education. That is why we started the our 360 Sports and Education Program (Funded through our Annual Kicking it for Education™ Campaign). One FAMILY, one SCHOOL, and one GIRL at a time we want to ensure basic needs for a proper education are being met and that sports and education are always aligned.

In addition to our work in local schools, we partner with local soccer clubs who believe in an equal playing field, creating space for girls to play on what has been known prior to be a male dominated playing field.

For girls who participate in our Leadership Program, they have the opportunity to apply for the financial support needed to continue their education. A key point is the funding can look different for each girl because it is created to reflect HER needs. We believe to know the girl, we need to understand her family's story and assistance could be life essentials that keep a child from attending school. Possible gifting could be a full year of schooling, school uniforms, school supplies, tuition fees, and/or extra tutoring.

Throughout the school year, attendance + a performance report is required to stay eligible so this will require a commitment from the entire family to ensure their Female Student Athlete is meeting the criteria needed.

In addition, we encourage each girl to give where she receives. This can be a commitment to a monthly clean sweep project, volunteering at local events, assisting the elderly, and more. If all areas are met and she is participating in our soccer program the following year, she will be able to reapply for future assistance. This is our 360...cultivating character on and off the field that will last a lifetime.

With our 'pay to play' system in the US, many girls in underserved communities don't have access to sports. Through our Grassroots Leadership Program we bring the sport to them where they are at, creating opportunities to play and gain leadership skills needed to succeed in life. We want to show girls they are seen, cared for, and not forgotten.

We focus on what is relevant now, while planting the seeds for our leaders of tomorrow. Our goals are centered around providing girls with life skills during a time of great influence and development. We create opportunities for girls in the 4th-6th grade, on AND off the field, to gain the confidence, courage, and character that can be lost at a young, adolescent age.

Our hands-on and interactive workshops focus on self-reflection and discovery with a different topic each week from Responsible Decision Making, Self-management, Self & Social Awareness, and more.
By creating opportunities on AND off the field WE BELIEVE the concept of a glass ceiling with limited dreams can be replaced with unlimited possibilities.

Current update: Our Grassroots program was created as an after-school program and due to COVID, we are currently holding soccer and empowerment workshops independently from the schools.

Our organization was created around the idea of girls empowering girls and our Ambassadors are the bridge between them all. Our goal is to empower Female Student Athletes to rise up, make a difference, and become strong leaders in their own communities, all while gaining the gift of empathy.

In our Ambassador for Change Leadership Program we focus on 3 tiers of development over a 9 month timeframe that coincides with the school year. (1) Monthly workshops focusing on Self-Leadership (2) Community Outreach focusing on gaining the gift of empathy. (3) Year End project focusing on personal development

What do our Ambassadors have in common? The desire to gain an edge + excel in a competitive world. The passion to show up and be a voice for change.

FUN FACT: As a part of their community outreach, our Ambassadors assist in our Grassroots Leadership Program. Their goal? Help young girls believe in their voice and gain the confidence, courage, and character needed to succeed in life. By co-developing and co-facilitating a series of soccer and empowerment workshops for those who are underserved, they are making a difference. This is the power of change when Girls Empower Girls!
