About the U.S. Soccer Foundation
At the U.S. Soccer Foundation, we use soccer as a vehicle to make positive social change in the communities where the need is greatest. We ensure that girls and boys living in underserved communities have access to evidence-based soccer programming that delivers positive health and youth development outcomes, as well safe places to play right in their neighborhoods.
Our program, Soccer for Success, provides children in underserved communities with free access to quality soccer programming, safe places to play, and caring coach-mentors who are trained to help transform young lives. In 2017, the Foundation announced its strategic goals to engage 1 million children in Soccer for Success and build 1,000 safe places to play by 2026.
Our Core Values
It takes an entire team of dedicated individuals to achieve our goals. Our core values guide our team members and drive our work forward.
- Embrace Ambition: We do not settle for what is, we are innovative and push the status quo. We are comfortable with the uncomfortable; big goals bring on unchartered territory. We seek to continuously improve and always pursue excellence.
- Community-Focused: We take a ‘work with, not for or to’ approach. We engage communities to drive systemic change. We are conscious leaders, sharing tools for success.
- Dynamic Team Spirit: We are fun and passionate about our cause. We support our teammates’ successes and priorities. We strive to be a team that considers all perspectives and reflects our diverse communities.
Throughout the year, the U.S. Soccer Foundation will seek energetic and hard working fellows to join its team. The individuals selected will have the opportunity to work with a wide range of projects that cover various elements of the Foundation in the areas of Programs, Development, Strategy, Government Relations, Marketing & Communications, and Legal/Operations.
At the U.S. Soccer Foundation, we believe in the power of the sport to transform young lives and enhance communities. Join our team to help us fulfill this mission and bring more than just soccer to communities across the country.
