Team Leader Testimonials
“When I accepted a position as a Team Leader, I expected to be able to improve my Spanish skills and to gain some valuable work experience. I guess I didn’t expect to be welcomed into a foreign community with open arms, or challenged in ways that no academic environment could ever achieve. The bear hugs, the quiet courage, and the glowing resilience of these young participants and their families have humbled me and sparked multiple new passions that will greatly impact the future course of my life, and forever change the way I see the world. I am so much better for it.” -Kelly Pope, Team Leader 2012-2013, Nicaragua

WHO WE ARE
Welcome to SWB!
This video is a news feature from Ben and Mary's trip to Cairo, Egypt in 2010, and talks a bit about the idea behind SWB, and gives some perspective on the types of activities and ways that SWB can build bridges across cultures and within cultures.

Current Summary of Programs
Focus on the Whole Person
SWB believes in a whole-person approach. Our programs help young people come into a greater understanding of their bodies, minds and voices, creating avenues toward individual growth, new opportunities, and the achievement of personal goals.

As a Team Leader, you will aid in the development of soccer skills and team-building, but also see each individual as a whole, supporting their growth as a young person seeking to overcome the obstacles placed before them en route to their goals. To this end, soccer activities will always be balanced with educational support, team-building, civic engagement, and other critical programming to build the life-skills necessary to make positive change.
Authenticity
Soccer Without Borders gives voice and value to the ideas of local leaders. In addition to imported human, physical, and intellectual resources, SWB mobilizes local expertise, empowering and employing resident experts to educate from within the community.

As a Team Leader, you will collaborate with and work alongside these leaders to form a program that best suits the needs of the youth in your community. This collaboration plays a crucial part in maintaining legitimacy in the community and among the youth participants, but is not without challenges. Navigating these relationships can be the most challenging part of a Team Leader's experience.
Process-oriented
SWB believes that the process is often more important than the outcome. SWB leadership, participants and families commit to uphold process-oriented values that create a culture of acceptance, an inclusive environment, and supported progress towards goals.

The values are:
The inherent potential and gifts of all young people
Honesty and authenticity in speech and action
All learners as teachers and all teachers as learners
Openness to all perspectives, voices, and people
Project Sustainability

In one year, your investment in outcomes may not become obvious; you are planting seeds that will grow throughout the year and into the future. With that in mind, the process by which Team Leaders (and all SWB staff) approach the program is just as important as the future outcomes themselves. Likewise, the process by which the participants approach their goals is as much a learning experience as the achievement of the goals themselves, building skills and character that they will carry with them into the next stage of life.
Soccer Without Borders began eight years ago as an all volunteer effort, rallying the passion of individuals from around the world to seek positive change through soccer. In time, SWB saw the need for full-time leadership at the organizational and program levels, in order to best pursue the intended outcomes. However, maintaining a lean structure that allows for the maximum amount of organizational funds to go directly to the youth in our programs remains a top priority. Thus, the organization relies on the hard work and commitment of more than 40 part-time staff and 200 volunteers annually.

Team Leaders are a unique blend between staff and volunteers, as they are largely (or entirely) supported by funders who believe in the work of SWB and the Team Leaders' commitment to the mission.
A team approach pervades nearly every aspect of the organization. Teams within SWB are made up a combination of full and part-time staff, volunteers, and advisers.
The Soccer Without Borders Team
These teams are -
Executive Team:
Visioning and Direction
Administrative Team:
Human Resources, Legal, Development, Financials and Tax Exempt Compliance, Outreach and Program team leadership
*Program Team: Individual Program Directors and Coordinators, Team Leaders, Local Staff, Volunteers
Development Team:
Promotion, Marketing, Campaigns and Fundraising initiatives
Board of Directors:
Governing body of the organization
Advisory Board:
Advising on all aspects of the organization
Soccer Without Borders first began programming in 2006 to address three critical issues facing young people in underserved communities throughout the world:

1. A lack of safe spaces where young people feel cared for, have a voice and can experience the joy of sport.
2. A lack of opportunity for youth to actively explore social issues and community challenges.
3. A lack of social capital and access to potential opportunities for education, employment and personal growth.

Over the last nine years, SWB has worked to refine its understanding of how its programs can best address these issues in different cultural contexts. SWB has sought to maintain an adaptable program model that authentically reflects the needs of the communities it works in, while also providing consistent program essentials, which must be in place in order for a SWB program to be effective. Along the way, SWB has benefited from the dedication of many passionate staff, volunteers, partners and supporters, each of whom has been infected by the soccer bug and believes strongly in working to build a more just, equitable and harmonious world.
Five Key Activities:
Soccer Play and Instruction
Team-building
Civic Engagement
Educational Support
Cultural Exchange

Program Rubric and Logic Model
Program Rubric
Explanation of the design:
The diagram loosely resembles a target, with four distinct quadrants. Each concentric circle represents a point level: 1, 2, 3, and 4. Each quadrant relates to an aspect of the program and generally who is responsible for implementing. Quadrant 1 is the activities, implemented by staff coaches, tutors, mentors, etc. Quadrant 2 are program inputs that are more adaptable to local circumstance, largely implemented by the program director and their staff, with less consistency across programs. Quadrant 3 are also program inputs, with the program director largely responsible, but more standardized across programs with more structure and support. Finally, Quadrant 4 is organizational infrastructure, sustained by SWB Main with support from the program director.

How to use this tool:
Each category is made up of sub-categories that are scored on a 4 point scale. Each sub-category has a defined target, which sets the bar for 4 points. Through a guided discussion, Program Directors and key staff are asked to rate the program in each category. Sub-category scores are averaged to create a final score which gets plotted on the diagram.
Team Leader Role in the Program Rubric
Example of the Program Rubric "in action"
SWB Logic Model
The program rubric is a tool to help us monitor growth at each site. The rubric helps us identify weak areas where we can continue to improve programming. The logic model is a concise picture of what our programs do and what outcomes we intend to see as a result. If we use the rubric correctly than we can hope to see the program outcomes expressed in the logic model, across programs.
Focus on the Activities Quadrant:
What are some observations you can make using this overlapped rubric? Where was progress made from 2012 to 2013 and where did the program see stagnation?
Where We Are Now

Granada, Nicaragua - U8 girls team pictured

Here is the Team Leader quadrant broken down by section in more detail.
What is the difference between the Rubric and the Logic Model?
“I cannot think of an experience that has better matched my interests and passions. The opportunity to make an immediate, visible impact everyday- whether through helping a student understand a new concept or making kids laugh on the football pitch- is incredibly rewarding.” -Nick Dreher, Team Leader 2011-2012, Uganda
Stefan Viragh, Team Leader Uganda, 2011-2012, Meltwater Online Intelligence Analyst
Team Leaders are a critical piece of SWB International Program success. Depending on the stage of development of your project site and the availability/ability of local staff, Team Leaders take on many aspects of program management, day-to-day execution, promotion, and administration. The responsibilities are extensive: YOU are key SWB USA representatives at your program site.

With great responsibility comes great freedom; you are not a cog in a wheel. The best Team Leaders have embraced the challenge of program development, and their role in creating sustainable community programming by becoming entrenched in the culture they aim to serve. With guidance and under the direction of your Local Program Director, Team Leaders work alongside local staff to continually shape a program that addresses obstacles to growth, inclusion, and personal success on and off the field of play.

What can funds be used for?
Money that you raise through tax-deductible donations to Soccer Without Borders will be earmarked for your expenses, however there are legal limitations as to what these donations can cover.

Travel:
Job-related Air travel and ground transportation, Visa and entry costs
Housing:
Room rentals or hostel/hotel costs for job-related travel, housing utilities
Board:
Food and drink (non-alcohol), general living expenses including toiletries and household supplies
Communication:
Phone and internet costs
Medical:
International insurance and other health care costs
Other Job-related Expenses:
Anything that you are asked to do, or choose to do, to further the mission of SWB in-country is considered job-related including additional travel, purchasing supplies, etc.

Personal Entertainment and Travel are not considered job-related and cannot be covered by tax-deductible funds.

As a result, it is recommended that you bring an additional $100 per month for these expenses, or more depending on your personal preferences. You may ask for support to raise this money, but it cannot be raised through SWB and we cannot issue receipts for it. It’s important that you speak with your donors about funds for personal use!

Raising Funds: Step 1
First step: Design your personalized Crowdrise Fundraising Page
1) Set up a Crowdrise profile https://www.crowdrise.com/signin/form/
2) Click “Create a Fundraiser”
3) Select to Fundraise for Soccer Without Borders
4) Share your Fundraiser!
An example of a fundraiser from Razoo by a Team Leader: http://www.razoo.com/story/Soccer-Without-Borders-Nicaragua
Advantages to online giving:
1) Crowdrise guarantees that all non-profits on their site are registered 501c3 organizations, therefore, donors receive receipts instantly through a secure platform. You can also easily send a personalized thank you.
2) Any donations collected through your page will be sent directly to SWB under your name, which we then add to your fundraising total.
3) You can put the Crowdrise fundraising Widget or “Donate Now” button on any other website, including your personal blog, Facebook page, etc.
4) Many donors prefer the ease of online giving
5) You can design custom thank you’s

Disadvantages to Crowdrise and online giving:
1) All online platforms range in their customizability and cost. Crowdrise is the best option to balance these, but charges a rate of 3% of each donation. Due to the volume of donations, SWB cannot absorb that loss, and so any donations collected online will be added to your total at 97%
Crowdrise
Raising Funds: Step 2 & 3
Second Step:

Open a Bank of America account for your fundraised money SWB banks with B of A, and opening a free checking out with them will make transfers to your account free and instant.
Keeping a separate account will help you to manage, track, and report your fundraised money much more easily.
Once you have opened your account, write this information on your Info Sheet (in your Welcome Packet)
Do this early so you can make sure the Debit Card arrives before you leave!

Third Step:
Create your materials and write your pitch
Make a list of potential donors, individuals and businesses/groups. Who will you email? Who will you send snail mail to? What will inspire them to donate?
Make a list of potential other avenues. What materials will you need for these to be effective?

Raising Funds: Step 4
Fourth Step: Start spreading the word!
Engaging your friends, family, and community to support your time abroad will be a big part of your preparation. The most important thing to remember is that people give to charity all the time. Your goal is not trying to get them to give, but rather to get them to give to
YOU
. Remember that SWB is a 501c3 non-profit organization, meaning that all donations are tax-deductible. This is an important incentive for some people to donate.

The better you can describe
what
SWB is,
where
you’ll be going, and
why
it’s important to you, the more people will want to support you.

There are many different ways to raise funds for your time abroad, ranging from direct solicitation to hosting events to “extra work hours” and everything in between. The key is to figure out what your best resources are, and then turn those resources into funding.

Common resources that are sometimes overlooked:
Time
Friends with time
Coaching skills
Events that attract large groups
Facilities/Field space
Connections to businesses/soccer clubs/tournaments/camps
Connections to schools or colleges
Facebook and blogs
Running ability
Ideas to Fuel the Fundraising Fire
Now that you’re set up, here are some ideas to get you going:
Fundraise by mail and online. By far the most effective way past volunteers have raised money is by directly soliciting donations from their friends, family and networks. to help cover both their trip costs and program costs for the SWB program where they will be interning. On and offline solicitations have both been successful. Remember that some older donors may not feel comfortable with email or donating online! To ensure that you get the full donation, encourage larger donors to give offline.

Host a “Small Goals for Big Change” 7v7 tournament.

This NYC tournament (http://swbsmallgoalsbigchange.weebly.com/) raised over $6,000, but it does require a major time investment. Smaller, more local and informal tournaments are also great ways to raise money while simultaneously providing a really fun day for your community.
Hold a bingo night.
With donated prizes, one team raised over $1,000 by playing bingo at their school.

Enlist others to raise for you.
Local high schools, clubs, or youth groups are great places to find others who might raise money on your behalf. One club team raised more than $5,000 for a past Team Leader, with little effort on her part!

Arrange a “SWB Day” at a game or event.
Sell t-shirts, hand out information, hold a 50/50 raffle, or give a presentation.
More Options
Run a concession stand.
Tournaments without concessions are great places to catch hungry and thirsty people and make a profit. If you hand out information and accept additional donations you could double your profit!

Sell t-shirts at camps.
High school players go to camp with spending money! Ask the camp director if you can present about SWB and sell t-shirts. Some camps have raised over $1,500 in t-shirt sales. You can buy t-shirts from SWB at the discounted price of $8, and sell them at a markup. $15-$20 is a good price point. Great way to bring in money and spread awareness.

Coach a skills clinic.
Get your college coach, teammates, or club coaches involved and offer a one-hour skills clinic for a suggested donation. Offering a t-shirt for a minimum donation of $20 is a good way to ensure a higher donation. One such clinic raised over $900 in an hour.

Run a race.
People are always giving money for charity runs, so choose a race and get running!

Coach individual sessions.
Spread the word that you are raising money for your trip and are offering individual or small group trainings for a minimum donation. $30-$40 for an hour is not uncommon!
Final Considerations
There are several different ways to fundraise, and as a result you will collect donations in a few different forms. Instructions for these different types (Online donations, Checks made out to SWB, Checks made out to you, Cash, T-shirt sales) will be included in your Welcome Packet.

To keep good track of your funding, SWB has created a tool to help you called the
Fundraising and Expense Tracking Sheet
. This sheet is optional, but can help you stay aware of your ins and outs.

You must raise a minimum of $2,000 by August 10th
in order to ensure that you are able to undertake this commitment. The funds will be used to book your flight and pay ahead your housing. Any remaining funds will be transferred to your account.

SWB will transfer any funds that you have personally raised to you in your SWB Bank of America Account according to the following transfer schedule:
August 1, September 1, November 1, January 1, April 1. If additional transfers are needed due to extenuating circumstances, these will be arranged.

REMEMBER- You can’t raise money if you don’t ask!

What needs to happen before training?
Flights
Book a flight or make travel arrangements to Boston, MA (BOS) to arrive on August, 15th in the morning or early afternoon.

Once the group is picked, we will put you in touch so that you can coordinate to fly together to your site from training. These flights can be reimbursed out of your fundraised money.

For Nicaragua the flight should be scheduled departing August 18th in the early morning and returning to the location of your choice on December 13th or later at any time in the day.

In the case of Uganda, if you are choosing not to return to the US during your winter break, it may be necessary to book a one-way flight. Check with your program director, Katy, before booking.

Bank Account
Open a checking account with Bank of America. This account will be your Team Leader account, where you should keep all fundraised money. SWB will transfer your fundraised money to you throughout the year using this account on a monthly/bi-monthly basis.

Register with the Embassy
All Team Leaders are required to register their trip with the United States Embassy. To register your trip go here: https://travelregistration.state.gov/ibrs/ui/.

Health/Travel Insurance
We recommend, but do not require, that you buy travel medical insurance, depending upon your health care provider at home. Here is a company past interns have used: http://www.phahealth.us/globmed2.html.
Team Leader Training, Boston, MA: August 14th-August 18th, 2016
Team Leader Training, Boston, MA: August 15-August 18, 2016 (tentative)
Team Leader training will be held in conjunction with programming with SWB Boston. During training, you will meet your fellow Team Leaders for both Nicaragua and Uganda, and gain a deeper understanding of SWB, its staff, your program site, and your role within it.

While in Boston, SWB will provide housing, transportation, and almost all meals. Team Leaders are responsible for booking their flight to Boston and from Boston to Nicaragua or Uganda (you can use fundraised money, just send your receipt and we will reimburse you).

It is important that you envision August 15th as your departure date. Training is intensive; you will be immersed in SWB life and learning, and will not have the time mentally, physically, logistically, or emotionally to wrap-up loose ends and say your goodbyes.
