CAN Fútbol Foundation’s mission is to use the sport of soccer as the vehicle to provide the world’s at-risk youth with positive life experiences and respectable role models to help them grow and develop as positive members of their communities.
By using the power of soccer as the vehicle for education to empower the world's underprivileged youth, CAN Fútbol Foundation (CANFF) provides their student-athletes with the knowledge, life-skills and encouragement to live a positive, meaningful lifestyle.
CANFF uses soccer as the medium for large-scale social change and individual improvement. This youth-led movement was inspired by a passion for soccer and the influence this sport can have on a global scale.
I realized that I didn’t want to simply be another soccer player recognized only for my accomplishments on the soccer field but rather someone who is going to make an impact in peoples’ lives by serving as an advocate for education and public health. It's for that reason that I conceived the idea for the CAN Futbol Foundation.
