Tyler  James

Co-Founder & Chief Opportunity Officer

Tyler, a high school friend of Josh's, traveled to Uganda with Josh in 2016 and instantly saw the potential for a collaborative program in the area. As an accomplished basketball player, he began to teach the students the game and through this, found how quickly bonds were made. Thus the CCP Uganda program was born. Tyler's role within The CCP is primarily focused around the students who interact with our programs and expanding The CCP's influence to new areas globally. In order to do so, he meets with communities and organizations about the potential to form programs and meet-ups.
