Tyler  James

Co-Founder & Chief Opportunity Officer

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