Leadership

We invest in our girls – on and off the field – to find their voice and passion.

Our coaches work with our participants at leadership events and conferences to encourage our players to become leaders in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) careers, philanthropy, and sports.

 

We inspire our girls to influence the world!

Intentional Curriculum

Over the years, our curriculum has been developed to incorporate lessons of leadership and character into our soccer practices, camps, and events.

We also collaborate with other organizations, like World Wide Women, Friends of the Commission on the Status of Women, and Alliance for Girls, to provide opportunities for our girls to attend conferences, workshops, and festivals fully devoted to the empowerment of women leaders.

We host annual Career Talks in which we invite women guest speakers from the community who are in STEM-S careers – science, technology, engineering, math, and sports – to speak to the girls about various career options and motivate them to become leaders in traditionally male-dominated fields. Guest speakers include women from PG&E legal counsel, High-Speed Rail project, Facebook, Google, Present, Airbnb, Girls in Tech, and more!

Junior Advisory Board & Junior Coaching

As part of our mission to train girls to become leaders, we provide a practicum opportunity through our Junior Advisory Board of Directors and Junior Coaching programs.

Every year, 10 to 15 girls from our program are selected by their peers to serve as our Junior Advisory Board, learning the ins and outs of a nonprofit organization while also helping to make important decisions on the direction of our programs.

The Junior Coaches (JC) program is designed to train and mentor high-school students in how to become a coach. We provide female role models for our players, and JCs serve as mentors and give back to the game for the younger generations. The JC commitment is one practice a week and monthly leadership workshops. The program length is for one season, working with the same team during that time. This is a great opportunity for high schoolers to gain job training and a practical use of their skills – all of which can be credited toward community-service hours.
