Purpose

WHY IS THIS PROGRAM NEEDED?

There is a lack of entry-level jobs for teenagers.  There is also a lack of screened, trained and certified referees, and many quit after only a short time.  We need to bridge the gap for young people from under-resourced and under-represented communities to have access to the entry-level jobs that are afforded through soccer.  We need to introduce these young people to the ranks of new officials, where they are sorely needed.  However, they need to be introduced under conditions where they have the preparation, skills and resources to succeed.

WHAT WOULD BE ACCOMPLISHED BY THIS PROJECT?

Goal 1:  Increase the pool for potential referees in underserved communities (and beyond) and better prepare them for joining the ranks of soccer officials. 

Goal 2:  Provide an entry point through which candidates will be recruited, screened, trained and certified to officiate youth games and move candidates through that process.

Goal 3:  Provide the support needed to retain referees once they enter the ranks of soccer officials.

Goal 4:  Provide employment opportunities to the new referees and the resources needed to access these opportunities.
