Street Soccer USA is a national nonprofit that uses the power of soccer to help people of all ages and backgrounds discover their strengths and take positive steps forward in their lives.
To provide an alternative to the pay-to-play model of youth sports with a focus on social impact across the United States and beyond.
SSUSA brings its programs to kids 6-18 years old, as well as special needs populations including homeless families, adults and people in recovery. We focus our efforts on the 33% of youth who are living below the poverty line and have graduation rates between 55-65%. In our nearly 10 years of existence we have introduced our program and positively impacted the lives of over 15,000 youth and adults, and have grown to encompass 14 cities throughout the USA. SSUSA is also the official partner of the Homeless World Cup and the Street Child World Cup, which provides opportunities for valuable international experiences for our program participants.
