April 1, 2013. For the next three weeks Coaches Across Continents will be working with Standard Chartered Bank in three different communities in Ghana. In total there will be four coaches working all three programs. CAC Staff members Emily Lambert and Brian Suskiewicz will be joined by our first-ever Community Impact Coach Nico Achimpota as well as a coach from the USA, Earl Strassberger.
Nico Achimpota has been instrumental for Coaches Across Continents in Tanzania. His program in Kigoma, Tanzania was our first-ever partnership in 2008. He has since brought CAC to other communities throughout his native country. This year, Nico was selected to become a pioneer in another way for CAC, being the first coach to be selected for our new initiative, our Community Impact Coach program.
Earl Strassberger comes to CAC from just outside Chicago, Illinois. He has coached and refereed at the High School and AYSO levels for the past two decades. Prior to starting a family, Earl was also in the Peace Corps and traveled around Africa in the 1970s. His home location during that time was Liberia, our most recent Community partner!
