Project Report | Feb 24, 2022

Open Field encourages youth to take ownership of a project in their community to teach leadership and civic engagement. Community leaders and coach mentors take on an advisory role, while the Youth Councilors, elected by their peers to represent their neighborhood, propose a project to make an impact. 

12 neighborhoods are engaged in this process in Kumba. We wanted to show you what a proposal looks like from one neighborhood. How and Why the youth chose their project and the process. As you are well aware by now, Open Field is a lot more than football/soccer. We're sharing the proposal for Fiango, one of the roughest areas in Kumba.
