Global FC is looking for committed tutors to guide and support First Generation Immigrant and Refugee Youth in their education. Our Academic Enrichment Initiative serves English language learners, advancing literacy development and critical thinking by harnessing the power of relationships to provide youth with the toolkit to master the English language.
During COVID-19 and the switch to virtual learning, students are experiencing challenges in schooling like never before! Join us in supporting youth in their English development, social-emotional growth, and academic success.
Global FC exists to bridge diverse cultures to come together, forming just communities where all are free to be fully-known and fully-loved in pursuit of their God-given purpose and potential. Mission: Global FC uses soccer as a vehicle for transformative impact.
Our program model is centered around building a village around each youth. The famous African proverb: 'It takes a village to raise a child!’ originated from the Nigerian Igbo culture and proverb 'Oran a azu nwa’. The Igbo’s also name their children 'Nwa ora’ which means child of the community.
Volunteers within our sports, education, and mentoring programming make up this village. Our community approach supports and celebrates youth, while holding them accountable as rising ambassadors.
We support underserved youth with the tools to overcome obstacles to success by providing resources, opportunities, and relationships towards a brighter future. We accomplish this through our three areas of programming: Soccer, Education and Mentoring.
Our holistic approach harnesses the power of relationships to reduce youth violence and family conflict, strengthen communities, inspire academic success, promote health and wellness and to create mentorship chains.

Tutoring sessions are 1.5 hours long, and each group meets once a week. Students also need tutors to pick them up and drop them off from home (optional), which adds another 20-30 minutes of volunteer time.
Tutors must remain flexible in the eye of unforeseen challenges and adapt to meet student needs. A background in education is not required as Global FC provides training, materials, and ongoing support.
