University of Minnesota women's soccer head coach Stefanie Golan has been chosen to participate in the 2019 Sports Envoy Program sponsored by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA). She joins former MLS and USMNT player, Tony Sanneh, as the two travel to Kenya from March 31-April 11 to work with and in the local communities to encourage athletic engagement and activity as well as share their knowledge and experiences from both on and off the field.

The Sports Envoy program gives leading figures in athletics the opportunity to facilitate sports diplomacy on behalf of the United States and increase cultural and social understanding between participating nations.
