Today, five local Young Leaders from our ‘City in the Community’ (CITC) program in New York City will embark on a life changing experience at Manchester City’s City Football Academy (CFA).
City Football Group’s global community work will take center stage as CFA opens its doors for the annual Cityzens Giving Young Leaders Summit.
Official Cityzens Giving Young Leader Summit Partner, Etihad Airways, is generously connecting young leaders from across the globe by flying them to Manchester to participate, which for many, will be their very first experience of international travel.
This year, the Summit will 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 Group 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 cutting-edge leadership training and share their experiences learning about how the unifying power of soccer can impact their communities.
For the first time, the returning young leaders will be taking charge and co-delivering the summit with City in the Community coaches, using knowledge and experience gained over the years to enhance the new young leaders’ confidence, leadership and community building skills.
