3rd) Participation on the Young Leaders Summit 2018

During the period of June 6 to 16 we attended to Citizens Giving Young Leaders 2018. Our group was made of 5 young leaders and one representative of our organization. It was an amazing experience, one week of training to improve skills and strengthen the work with young leaders.

Below is the testimony of a young leader who participated this year for the first time:

"For me the experience was incredible and unique from start to finish. Traveling on an airplane for the first time, leaving my country, getting to know other cultures and countries. If I had to use a word to describe the Summit it would be inspiring. Seeing how it is possible to work with social issues through sport makes me reflect on the expectations placed on the sport. In addition to wellness and physical health, issues such as: Inclusion of the disabled, healthy eating, interaction, building safe environments for practice, female empowerment, all this is linked to football and can be developed through football. It has opened my eyes." ( L. A. 19 years old)

In March we organized an exchange between the young leaders and colleagues from another social organization. We had the participation of two women's teams of the Gol de Letra Foundation in the Women's Festival ACER, being one team composed of the young leaders and another team composed of students of the futsal class. We highlight that the young leaders Leticia, Larissa and Lara led the organization, planning and training of the teams, putting into practice the knowledge they acquired during the project and with the training they have been to in Manchester, in an exchange organized by the City Football Foundation.
