Yebo Volleyball is an Non-Profit Organization providing volleyball training, mentoring, and employment opportunities to underprivileged youth in Cape Town. We train over 200 kids per year in volleyball and help connect them with schools and scholarship opportunities to further their education and athletic goals. See our Youtube video here!
Youth unemployment in South Africa exceeded 50% before the COVID pandemic and continues to climb. We can use the funding to make our program more sustainable with part-time salaries for South African youth that help us with coaching, organizing events, and buying more sports equipment. This is our first crowdfunding campaign as our funds to date have been raised from the local volleyball community and through fundraising events we've organized in the past, which are now limited with the Covid-19 pandemic. We're especially proud of the 30 kids we've helped qualify for scholarships at a local sports high school as they've been able to move out of the township for school, continue playing volleyball, and further their studies.
We currently focus on kids in the Western Cape at the primary school level up through University. We hope to continue coaching volleyball again once the lockdown restrictions have been lifted while continuing to give opportunities to South African youth in the process.
