Taiwo Foundation

Our Services

Mentoring Services – for international student athletes attending college in the US to ensure successful academic, social and athletic transition and matriculation. We will also work with the students on developing and deploying a Service Project in their local community during their summer break, thus creating a vehicle for them to give back as a Taiwo Foundation Ambassador. A Taiwo Foundation representative will attend each student’s college graduation ceremony.

Scholarships/Funds – for international student athletes attending college in the US and needing supplemental funding for personal incidentals; to Cultural Immersion and Service Learning Project participants

Spring/Fall Break Lodging – for international student athletes attending college in the US with no place to go when the campuses close down for Fall, Spring, and Christmas Breaks.

Sports Gear – gently used and new soccer gear and clothing to individual youth and soccer teams who lack/cannot afford basic soccer uniforms and cleats. The gear will be purchased by the Taiwo Foundation or donated by affiliated high schools and youth soccer clubs in North Carolina.

Educational Workshops and Forums for Parents, Educators, Coaches – communicating the information they need to know (NCAA, College Admissions, and Academic Requirements) to prepare and support international student athletes
