We partner with local organizations to implement our award-winning 'Hat-Trick Initiative' that focuses on local social issues such as: female empowerment, including gender equity; conflict resolution, including social inclusion; health and wellness, including HIV behavior change; and other life skills. Our key to success is a unique self-directed learning model that is based on our 'Chance to Choice' curriculum. In 2014 to date, we have worked in 21 countries with 51 implementing community partner programs. Overall, we have educated 2,171 community coaches who impacted a further 162,908 young people.

Volunteer CoachDescription: As a volunteer coach you will work alongside other CAC coaches (volunteers and senior staff) at one or more of our partner programs. We typically stay at each partner program for 1-2 weeks. Depending on the length of your volunteering, you may volunteer in several communities and possibly several different countries during your trip. Prior to your departure we will provide you with coach training (see below), but you will also learn a lot in your first few days On-Field with the expectation that you are a full CAC coach by the end of your first week, capable of training local leaders at that time.
Requirements for volunteers: We are looking for the best people who can use soccer for social impact and who will represent our organization on and off the field.
Number of Volunteers Needed: 100
Time Commitment: One Time Event
