Since arriving in Manchester last week, with the support of official Summit partner Etihad Airways, Young Leaders have designed, developed and delivered training sessions to each other and primary school children across Manchester.
Yesterday, Young Leaders took a tour of Manchester to see our wonderful sights, stopping at Manchester Cathedral along the way, before returning to City Football Academy.
Young Leaders from each city then delivered a football session from their own project to the wider group. Each rotation was a great example of how football can be used around the world to tackle issues by promoting healthy eating, female empowerment and education.
In the afternoon, Young Leaders took part in sessions focusing on mental health, safeguarding and communications, led by Manchester City staff. These were designed to equip Young Leaders with the skills to continually enhance the delivery of their own projects.
The final session of the day saw Young Leaders engage with members of staff from across the Club who came to find out more about each of their cities, cultures and projects. Some of the Young Leaders wore traditional dress and offered special delicacies from their country.
Annemarie Elsom, Head of Programmes for City Football Foundation said: “There were some amazing costumes, displays and conversations going on throughout the session.
"This was a true demonstration of how football can be used to bring different people and cultures together.”
