The mission of the U.S. Soccer Foundation is to enhance, assist and grow the sport of soccer in the United States, with a special emphasis on underserved communities. We view soccer as a powerful vehicle for social change. By supporting the development of places to play, places to grow and places to learn, our goal is to ensure that children in underserved communities have easy and affordable access to quality soccer programs that support their physical and personal development.
Soccer for Success is the U.S. Soccer Foundation’s free afterschool program that provides children in urban, underserved communities with structured physical activity, nutrition education and mentorship, at no cost to their families. Children participate in 90 minute sessions, 3 days a week throughout the entire academic year. Coaches serve as mentors and stress the importance of making healthy lifestyle choices while promoting the values of teamwork, leadership, discipline, and respect. The program currently serves 18,000 children in 25 cities nationwide.
For the last two years Johnson & Johnson has been a proud sponsor of U.S. Soccer Foundation’s Capital Soccer Classic, bringing together soccer enthusiasts from the halls of Congress, current and former national team players, and members of the diplomatic community, benefiting the Foundation’s Soccer for Success program.
