In Melbourne, Young Leaders are using a unique football and art programme to help young people build connections though the I Speak Football project.
The City of Melbourne is home to one of the world's most culturally diverse communities, with 140 cultures represented, from Victoria's original Indigenous inhabitants to more recent migrants from Europe, Africa and Asia.
However, adjusting to life in a new city can be hard for young people. For the past five years, Young Leaders have been using football to create a supportive environment for over 6,000 young people, who can often feel a sense of loneliness when they first arrive.
Abraham and other Young Leaders will continue to engage and support young people who struggle with social isolation.
