UN Camp Sweden
Our flagship program, UN Camp Sweden has just completed its 5th year of activity. From 2-8 April, global youth leaders from both disadvantaged communities around the world and Sweden came together to undertake 8 days of inspirational meetings aimed at increasing their capacity at using sport to evoke change in their communities. With a program full of some of the best organizations in the field of sport for development and peace, UN Camp Sweden offered a unique opportunity both for students to learn from the organizations but just as importantly from each other.
Role Model Accelerator Program
We aim to offer programs to young people who have the qualities of a leader and the passion to make positive changes in their communities. In collaboration with Fryshuset, we aim to offer unique, tailor made trainings programs aimed at giving young people in Sweden the tools to build their status as role models in Swedish communities and to pass on that knowledge to the next generation of young role models who will come after them.
With 200 courts in over 15 countries, Cruyff Courts have become synonymous with quality in the sport for development and peace field. The courts which are designed under a specific template provided by the Johan Cruyff Foundation, offer communities the responsibility of self governance and offer youth and kids a place for both organized and spontaneous activities. The Power of Sport Foundation is instrumental in bringing the courts to Sweden with the first arrivals scheduled for 2018 and will provide customized trainings to the youth who will take ownership of the courts.
Athlete Mentorship Program
Our athletes have all tasted success, they have also all come up against challenges in their lives and have inspiring stories about how sport has helped them in their career. The Athlete Mentorship program helps give athletes the tools necessary to effectively share their stories and inspire young people around Sweden. Training focuses on the interaction between athlete and young people and effective ways to articulate the unique journey that athletes take throughout their careers.
Female Athletes’ Career Development Support
Research shows that women’s leadership experience through sports boosts career development. Tailor-made education programs are essential in successfully transition sport experiences into a second significant career. The launch of business supported scholarship opportunities will be key to recruit among female athletes. Women role models, both from the sport and the business world, are important to showcase how sport has contributed to their development and success. The program will raise awareness and interest to promote sport experience among business society.
