We create opportunities that build belonging through sport, music, art, and learning and everyone belongs here.
Umoja Community Mosaic started in 2010 as a drop-in soccer club. We host soccer outdoors in the summer months and indoors in the winter months where we focus on inclusion, emotional regulation, conflict resolution, and community building. We also work with competitive soccer clubs to insert talented players into teams across Calgary (with tremendous thanks to CalGlen).
**Please note: All sports participants need to register, even if they participated in the previous season**

Food security is a growing concern with the pandemic and inflation. Umoja supports lower income families and seniors with food. This food is often delivered directly to Calgarians and is available for pickup in at least two communities. Sometimes we provide gift cards and we also work with faith groups to help increase our reach to folks in need.
We strive to provide foods from families’ home countries. They know how to prepare it, they will eat it and it brings comfort just like with any families’ cultural foods.
Umoja connects students with tutors in the community. Many tutors are also involved as participants and may have received tutoring themselves during times of need.
Before the pandemic, tutoring was offered largely in-person. During the pandemic, tutoring was done virtually with Google Meet, Zoom, MS Teams, etc.
To provide access to low income newcomer youth to a safe, inclusive space for out of school programs including; arts/music/craft and homework support and social connections and emotional learning through engagement, in Winter/Spring 2023/2024. Volunteers help with homework and studying, and kids will engage in soccer (and other sports), music, arts and crafts.
