City celebrate International Youth Day

CITC: International Youth Day celebrations.

CITC: International Youth Day celebrations.

EDS players Billy O’Brien and Marcus Wood led the celebrations for UN’s International Youth Day on Friday 12 August, as Manchester City’s community projects around the world joined together to mark this significant day.

The young duo jumped straight into a football match against young participants taking part in City in the Community’s free soccer schools at City Football Academy on the day that aims to celebrate the contribution young people make to society.

Our network of Young Leaders from nine #CityzensGiving projects around the world will also be reaching out to more than 3,100 young people by hosting dedicated community events with the simple aim of using football to make a difference to young people in their community.

EDS keeper Billy said: “I love getting out in the community and I’ve been lucky enough to see the Club’s community work here in Manchester but also around the world.

"I’m always impressed with the young leaders delivering the projects - they are so passionate about what they do and want to tackle issues affecting their local area.”

You can find out what our young leaders are getting up to by joining the conversation with #CityzensGiving.
