The Cockroach Club founders actively promote soccer as a medium for community building and education amongst youth in Nairobi, Kenya. CCX is a sister initiative of Planet Habitat ®, (www.planethabitat.net) a socially responsible investment platform. 

Village Community Boathouse (www.villagecommunityboathouse.org) offers free community rowing and boat building services from its base at Pier 40 on New York City’s Hudson River. VCB’s purpose is to restore safe, universal public access to our city’s largest public space—its waterways—and to introduce the public, especially young people, to the joys of rowing, sailing, and boatbuilding.  VCB is a nonprofit 501c3 organization.
