Tjark is 30 years old and born in Germany. He studied Sports sciences and German in Berlin to become a teacher. During the semester breaks he used to work as a surf coach at the French Atlantic coast. After finishing his degree he moved to Lisbon, Portugal, to combine his passion of surfing with the profession of a teacher. Tjark worked at the German International School as a teacher for Sports (Physical Education), German and English for two years. As he wanted to employ the social impact of sports for people in need he joined the KLABU Foundation in August 2022 and moved to Amsterdam, the Netherlands, where he is working as a Project Manager now. KLABU is a young organisation based in Amsterdam, a social start-up with a scalable business model to power positive change through sport. They work directly with refugee communities around the world, who lead their own projects.
