Global Citizen Testimonials

Hiroki Kobayashi

'There are two things that really struck me during this trip. I’ve never looked at soccer as a tool to make social impact before working with CAC, and I was impressed how your ingeniously designed drills could influence the coaches and the kids to become critical thinkers. The second thing that really moved me was seeing and working with people who genuinely care about others happiness, and who can find joy in helping others.'

Mel Baskind

'I had an unbelievable time travelling as a volunteer coach with CAC. I found working for the organization to be the perfect way of balancing meaningful work with seeing the world. Working with CAC allowed me to travel to the farthest corners of the Earth and return home with a host of new perspectives. It is an experience that stays with you long after the end of your trip.'

Tim Linden

'While volunteering with Coaches Across Continents in Colombia, I was able to witness the power of using sport to mobilize communities and drive significant social impact. This experience has helped me think outside the constraints of traditional approaches to problem solving in the developing world and promote new, adaptable models of collaboration that nurture and leverage people’s talents and passions.'

Lindsey Daugherty

'Volunteering with CAC was one of the most rewarding and positive experiences I have ever had. Not only did I get to teach life-long lessons through my favorite sport, but I learned so much from the amazing people of Kenya along the way as well: carry an open heart and an open mind at all times, no matter where you go or who you meet.'

Graham Bradford

'Africa is a shock to the system for most of us from a comfortable life in the developed world. It is difficult not to be in awe of young people and children we worked with who enjoy virtually no material wealth, grinding daily life and shattered family backgrounds yet remain upbeat, are positively aspirational and manage to smile.'

Adam Rousmaniere

'I started thinking about my upbringing and tried to find one individual experience in my past that has impacted everything that happened afterwards. I came to realize that, my “formative” experience occurred during my two months in Malawi with CAC. It has impacted how I relate to people, how I react to certain situations, and how I perceive the world in general.'
