Our Young Coach Education Programme in Colombia (July 2015 – April 2016) trained 35 Young Coaches in three modules of one week each. The project’s main social focus was on conflict resolution, peace building and drug prevention.

YOUNG COACH
EDUCATION PROGRAMME

With the main goal of contributing to existing peace building initiatives in Colombia, the Football Club Social Alliance ran its Young Coach Education Programme in Colombia from July 2015 to April 2016.

According to a study by Colombia’s National Centre for Historical Memory, approximately 220,000 people have died in the conflict between 1958 and 2013 and more than five million civilians were forced from their homes generating the world’s second largest population of internally displaced persons. The Colombian Departement Antioquia has been one of the most affected areas of the conflict for which it has been chosen as location for the Football Club Social Alliance’s Young Coach Education Programme.

The programme educated 30 young women and men from Antioquia and other regions of Colombia on how to organise quality football and social activities as a tool to promote reconciliation and coexistence. The participants were selected by well-established NGOs such as ICRC, Terre des Hommes and organisations from the Colombian Soccer And Peace network.

Up to date, the programme in Colombia benefits some 9,000 children.
