Global FC Program Model
Global FC is a holistic and integrated approach to supporting youth through resources, opportunities and relationships. 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. The same sentiment is echoed in proverbs of various other African cultures, such as the Swahili proverb “One hand does not nurse a child”, the Sudanese proverb “A child is a child of everyone”
Volunteers within our sports, education, and mentoring programming, including our community resource partners are all members of our village. Our community approach supports and celebrates, while holding them accountable as rising ambassadors.
