Melbourne City FC will be holding its third Young Leaders Training Program at the City Football Academy in Melbourne 8 – 11 January, 2019 to help educate and empower the community’s future leaders.
The free, four-day program is designed to equip young community leaders with the leadership skills and techniques required to create social change in their communities, through practical and theoretical football sessions.
Three of City’s existing Young Leaders, who have been trained through the Club’s City in the Community program over the past three years, Mohamed Osman, Wilson Poni and Cara Matsa will lead the workshop for 60 young members of the local Victorian community, alongside an experienced CITC coach from Manchester City, Matt Mason.
Those leaders who have progressed through Melbourne City’s training program will share their knowledge and experiences learned across their time at the Club and as part of the global Cityzens Giving Young Leaders training in Manchester.
Young leaders will also hear from members of City’s A-League and W League leadership groups, CEO Scott Munn and Melbourne City staff in a speed mentoring session
