Soccer Without Borders

While interning with Soccer Without Borders, I am coaching immigrant and refugee high school students at their summer soccer camp, helping facilitate lessons for their Summer SAT and College Prep class, and working in their office providing administrative assistance. This internship is the perfect way for me to explore my interests in teaching and coaching which are two fields I am very interested in entering after I graduate from Whitman.
