  Building Community. 
  Transforming Youth.  

Harambee Sports Club supports diversity, equity and cultural humility in youth sports. Harambee is a Swahili word that translates to “working or pulling together.” We see sports as an engaging and challenging experience that must support youth with positive role models and provide them with opportunities to create connections with each other and their communities. We invite like-minded families to join us on this journey.
