Young Leaders Training Program returns in April


Melbourne City FC will be holding another Young Leaders Training Program at the City Football Academy in Melbourne to help educate and empower the community’s future leaders during the April school holidays.

Following on from the success of City’s third Young Leaders Training program in January, City in the Community has announced a two-day Young Leaders Training Program during the April school holidays, from Monday 8 April to Tuesday 9 April at the City Football Academy in Bundoora.

The two-day program will focus on community leadership and developing skills and attributes needed to deliver community football programs that address social issues and impact the community. It will cover a range of skills and topics, including mentoring, group dynamics, communication and coaching for social impact.

Young Leaders will build confidence, values and mind-set to lead effectively, and also develop skills in inter-cultural awareness and respect across different backgrounds and cultures.
