We have an incredible team of staff, volunteers & ambassadors that make The Good Chat Foundation deliver a variety of programs to the community. Our entire team is volunteer based.
Our short term programs of up to 10 weeks are designed to build a sense of purpose, build skills in a sport of their choice and improve social communications between likeminded individuals.
We work together with our stakeholders & facilitators to provide multi sport programs for at-risk youth of all walks of life.
Our philosophy is to co-design programs with the community to foster relationships and build a sense of purpose and belonging to create thriving communities.
