Marketing & Communications Fellowship

 

WHO WE ARE:

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 as safe places to play right in their neighborhoods. Our after-school soccer program, Soccer for Success, provides children 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 playing spaces 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.
