Volunteers are crucial to our program vision and success. We see our volunteers not merely as support agents that assist in our organization tasks, but rather the “change agents” within our growing community who are willing to shepherd new ideas for the betterment of the people we serve. All this, while staying true and connected to our founding vision and core values.
“I have lived in Kansas City all my life and finally learned that the only way to truly gain knowledge about the different barriers within our city was to go be present on the other side of the said barriers. You cannot learn what people truly need without being in relationship with them and understanding where they come from. That’s why Global FC has been such an amazing thing for me, it’s given me that link to the Northeast that I’ve been looking for, with an added bonus of something I love- soccer! We talk about how soccer is a common language among all of our kids from different countries, but it’s also a way for me to connect with the kids as well. I look forward to Thursday evenings every week when I get to spend time with our girls team- they bring me so much joy (and dance lessons). Global FC means the world to me and I am so thankful I came across that article in the Kansas City Star a little over a year ago and connected with Mariya to learn more. Observers may think us volunteers are blessing the refugee families through our service, but the truth is, the refugee families are blessing us through their love, and compassion and willingness to let us into their lives.”

“Coaching with Global FC has helped me to remember exactly why I wanted to get into coaching in the first place. Being able to work with this program and these kids is the most rewarding thing I have ever been part of. We are more than a program. We are family.”
