Next week, more than 60 inspirational youngsters are set for a life changing experience at Manchester City.
The Club’s global community work will take centre stage as City Football Academy opens its doors for the annual Cityzens Giving Young Leaders Summit.
Official Cityzens Giving Young Leader Summit Partner, Etihad Airways, is generously connecting our young people by flying them from 14 projects to Manchester, which for many, will be their very first experience of international travel.
This year we’ll welcome returning leaders from Manchester, New York, Melbourne, Cape Town, Kuala Lumpur, Barranquilla, Kolkata, São Paulo and Ghana as well as from the latest additions to the City Football family in Beijing, Bandung, Mexico City, Abu Dhabi and Hanoi.
The third Young Leaders Summit will enable participants from a growing network of Cityzens Giving projects to access leading edge training in community football and share learning about how they are using the game's unifying power to impact their communities.
For the first time, our returning young leaders will be taking charge and co-delivering the summit with City in the Community coaches, using the knowledge and experience gained over the years to enhance the new young leaders confidence, leadership and community football coaching skills.
