WHAT WE DO
Philadelphia Union Foundation is dedicated to providing career readiness and mentorship support to high school students in Chester. Our program offers a unique opportunity for students to receive invaluable guidance and support as they prepare for their future careers. Join us in empowering the next generation of leaders.
We began with a dream of providing safe spaces for children and adults to play soccer in their communities. This dream was turned to reality by building mini pitches throughout Philadelphia. Our hope is to give back to communities through soccer, to help children grow both physically and emotionally, and to provide a positive outlet for everyone. We are proud to partner with a number of community organizations that share in that goal.
We believe that providing opportunities for young people is key to building a strong and vibrant community. That is why we are dedicated to supporting underserved children and families in the greater Philadelphia area. We offer a range of signature programs that help kids develop critical life skills, build character, and foster a love for the game of soccer. But we also recognize the importance of education in shaping a child's future, which is why we have a scholarship program to help aspiring students achieve their academic goals.
We are dedicated to improving the mental health and well-being of individuals and communities across the region. With our Mental Health and Well-being initiative, we aim to promote understanding, support, and resources to enhance and uplift our community. Our staff and dedicated volunteers are working tirelessly to create a more compassionate and inclusive environment. We believe that everyone has the right to thrive and achieve greatness and we’re committed to using our resources to make that a reality.
We are a non-profit organization dedicated to providing no-cost soccer programming and clubs to underprivileged communities in the Chester area. Our primary goal is to empower our youth through sports, teaching them valuable life skills such as teamwork, discipline, and perseverance. We believe that every child deserves an equal opportunity to thrive, regardless of their financial situation.
