Located in cities across the country, Street Soccer USA (SSUSA) uses sports as a development tool to connect homeless young people and adults to jobs and education opportunities that help them lead a better life. The organisation’s activities are implemented in close partnership with local service providers.

 

Under the theme ‘Soccer for social change – ending homelessness through sports,’ SSUSA uses a 16-week curriculum based on eight core life skills to enable the participants to score goals on the field and achieve their goals in life. By creating a fun, positive and inclusive team structure around its regular city leagues, SSUSA provides participants with a family-like support structure of trust and reliability that helps them to regain control over their own lives.
