Social Change Soccer Tours
One of the most exciting aspects of being involved in UKSD, is the opportunity to participate in a UKSD Social Change Through Soccer Tour.
High School aged volunteers are eligible to participate in a social change tour within the US, or globally, where we have a long lasting relationships with other like minded soccer organizations.
These trips will allow high school aged students to travel to different areas of the world and work one on one with children in lower socioeconomic communities with UKSD coaches, as part of the Kidz Play 4 Free Project.
Before the tours, participants are required to help collect equipment and supplies to help the communities they will be visiting.
During the trip, participants will be able to provide quality coaching and soccer opportunities for children, while also working on projects to help improve local education, housing, water supply, and any other projects the communities may need help with. It is imperative that participants become aware of how much of an impact they can make to those in need throughout the world.
Once UKSD members graduate high school and move onto their new lives, it is our hope that the lessons they have learned within UKSD will stay with them for life.
Some will stay involved with soccer, and some will not. Either way, our hope is that they will in some form, continue to dedicate a portion of their lives to helping others.
