CTC Ten Fundraising and Partnerships Fellow
Operations | Cape Town, South Africa | Full Time
The CTC Ten Foundation was founded in 2007 to honor the memory of Christopher T. Campbell. The CTC Ten Safe Hub consists of a soccer pitch and adjoining clubhouse that is dedicated to providing soccer-based health and educational programming to the local community of Khayelitsha, South Africa. The CTC Ten Safe-Hub programs are managed and facilitated by our implementing partner and local South African non-profit, AMANDLA EduFootball. Through the EduFootball curriculum, participants develop life-skills through soccer like team building, conflict resolution, and goal setting. As our partner, AMANDLA EduFootball has helped us fulfill our mission to promote the education of disadvantaged youth in a culturally sensitive and effective way.
Each year, the CTC Ten Foundation selects two individuals as CTC Ten Fellows to support the ongoing development of the CTC Ten Safe Hub. CTC Ten Fellows work closely with our implementing partner AMANDLA EduFootball and are instrumental to the success of delivery of community and life skills enhancement programs.
