Providence and Seattle Sounders FC Partnership
You’re sure to notice the flashy new green Providence jerseys at any Seattle Sounders match, but that’s just a small part of the new Providence and Sounders partnership.
At Providence, our vision is to provide health for a better world, and this partnership does that by emphasizing mental health.
We believe collaboration between organizations and people is a way to bring attention and support to the current youth mental health crisis. We’re bringing people together through the love of soccer.
We’re using our platforms to improve mental health resources for youth, starting here at home, with the Renton School District. Here’s how:
- Increase access to mental health services
- Create safe spaces for kids to play
- Foster a culture to help kids prioritize their mental well-being and support their friends
- Provide in-person and virtual events using the Work2BeWell curriculum, developed through Providence’s Well Being Trust
Soon we’ll bring these programs to schools across Washington. Our goal: make mental health resources accessible to people of all ages.
Providence’s mission is to provide health for a better world. Partnering with Seattle Sounders helps us improve the health of the people we serve.
