City in the Community Wrap


It’s been a busy period in the community over the past week, as our team brought plenty of football fun to our city. See where the Club has been over the past week. 

I Speak Football in Carlton 

Football is a universal language and City in the Community’s I Speak Football project brings together youth from a range of different backgrounds to help them to address isolation and loneliness in our diverse society.

On Tuesday, City Head Coach Warren Joyce was joined by players  Jamie Maclaren, Ritchie De Laet, Riley McGree, Dylan Pierias, Lachlan Wales, Harrison Delbridge, Shay Harrison, Florin Berenguer and a number of staff in Carlton, as the team took part in a range of fun activities with the kids. 


Ronald McDonald House visit 

Warren Joyce then joined Bart Schenkeveld, Eugene Galekovic, Scott Jamieson, Harrison Delbridge and Iacopo La Rocca, as they visited Ronald McDonald House in Parkville. The boys met Narvana and her family, with her brother Braxton being a keen Melbourne City fan. The team signed autographs and gave away City gift bags. 


Homework club launches

On Tuesday afternoon, City in the Community’s homework club relaunched in Bundoora. Homework club gives kids from the community an opportunity to finish their school work and homework. Run by City’s Young Leaders, the kids complete their school work before participating in 30 minutes of exercise. Homework club continues to be a great way for CITC to engage with our local community.
