COMMUNITY CONNECT FOR YOUTH LEADERSHIP PROJECT (CCYL)

The Football for Youth Leadership Programme is part of the Foundation’s sports for development initiative. Aimed at grooming young leaders aged 16 to 23, the programme teaches leadership and fair play skills to young people, using the game of football as a tool.

The project also focuses on:

  • Enhancing the capacity for youths to appreciate the game of football beyond scoring goals.
  • Grooming a TBLF Team to participate in other national FIFA-accredited projects around Nigeria.
  • Enhancing the capacity of young people in using the common passion of football to drive the development of communities
  • Inculcating the values of respect for others, teamwork, team spirit, gender equality and sportsmanship, raising the leadership potentials of young people to take responsibility for their future.

Other life skills such as Decision Making, Goal Setting, Gender and Gender based Violence, Sexual and Reproductive Health, Creativity and Entrepreneurship are also studied in the 3 weeks course.
