Kick It Out has teamed up with the UEFA Foundation for Children to launch 'Game Changers' - a new mentoring programme for 12 young adults, aged between 16-24, seeking professional opportunities in the football industry.
The aim of the programme is to identify and create the future leaders of football, inspiring them to bring positive change to the sport with regards to equality, inclusion and cohesion, and in turn help to address the underrepresentation of minority groups across the industry.
The programme is supported by UCFB and the Premier League, who provide bespoke training sessions to the chosen candidates on the core learning themes of empowerment, leadership, football governance and project planning alongside enhancing their knowledge of equality and inclusion.
Candidates also receive access to Kick It Out’s Raise Your Game mentoring and leadership series, supported by the Premier League, which sees a number of events organised during the year that focus on supporting career pathways into football.
For any further information about the Game Changers programme, please contact Osei Sankofa, Education Officer at Kick It Out, via email on [email protected]
