ORGANIZATION: GLOBAL FC

Image_202009231010

Global FC works hard to break down barriers between the refugee community and quality soccer opportunities! We are looking for drivers to safely transport individuals for various programming. Due to family scheduling demands and lack of transportation, most players would be unable to participate in soccer without help from Global FC. But we can't do it without your help!

This is also a mentoring opportunity - a chance to get to know incredible youth in your community!

Driving opportunities take place primarily after school Monday-Thursday and on Saturdays. You do not need to sign up for all shifts, we will take any shift you are willing to give!

Our biggest need is for the soccer practice shift from approx 5:00-7:45 Monday & Wednesdays. Pick one day or both!

*Individuals must wear a mask in vehicles at all times*

Mission Statement

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.

Description

Global FC was founded by first generation refugee, Mariya Goodbrake, and primarily serves first generation immigrant and refugee youth in the northeast neighborhoods of Kansas City, Missouri using soccer as our tool for transformation. We support 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.
