Chance to Play in Barcelona Columbia with Anita Bergsma – Founder and Executive Director and Ed Murphy – President of Bridges of Hope Columbia

Barcelona Columbia

Support Environmental and Development Sustainability

Each C2P outreach trip takes place in a community where our organization has been historically provided sustainable development to work.  Partnering with Canadian Soccer Clubs, donated soccer uniforms, balls and other gear are delivered to children and youth in socioeconomic areas, providing alternative outlets.


Barcelona ColumbiaMake an Impact

Volunteering on a Chance to Play trip, you support outgoing soccer programming in low income communities and neighbourhoods.   The largest hurtle for children and youth is education, food security, water, health, and equality in income for parents.  Allowing children and youth to play soccer, keeps them off the street, out of gangs, and in school. Your volunteer work is driven by the community and its needs.  You will work along side soccer coaches in assisting in practices, games, mentoring and leadership programs.
