Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 6 ottobre 2018

Buenos Aires: Sport at the Service of Humanity launched its Young Leaders Mentoring Program, which aims to prepare athletes and young leaders in sport to “Win in Life” and inspire their communities through the power of their example. The program, launched with the support of ISPS Handa, will see four young leaders from South Sudan, Canada, Philippines and Israel embark on a transformational one-year journey under the mentorship of four distinguished sport and business champions. The four young leaders taking part in the first year’s program are: • Anjelina Nadai – A 23-year-old track runner from the Kakuma Refugee Camp in South Sudan. She was a member of the Refugee Olympic Team at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. • Chantal Sathi – A Canadian of Sri Lankan Heritage; she is a kick boxer, a personal trainer and a community youth leader and has a degree in Kinesiology and a Masters in Theology in Urban and International Development • John Paul Masubay – A 24-year-old football player, coach, mentor and youth leader from Tacloban, Philippines. • Shahid Bishara – A 15-year-old female squash player who lives with her family in an Arab town in Israel. She got involved in squash at age 10 as part of a special project that that aimed to help bridge gaps between Jewish and Arab cultures in Israel.
These mentees will have the privilege of being mentored by the following four mentors: • HRH Prince Feisal Al Hussein – IOC Member, President of Jordan Olympic Committee, Founder/Chairman of Generations for Peace • Victor Montagliani – FIFA Vice President, President CONCACAF • Renata Simril – President and CEO of LA84 Foundation • Jon Tibbs OBE – Founder/Chairman of JTA
The mentees and mentors met for the first time earlier today during an interaction session, in which the mentors shared their experience, stories and vision of how they see the mentorship relationship unfolding. Tomorrow, the mentees will meet with IOC President Thomas Bach who has regularly shown his support for the Sport at the Service of Humanity, most notably at its first Global Conference on Faith & Sport in 2016 where he was one of the featured speakers.
The first cohort of mentees will become the inaugural Sport at the Service of Humanity Global Youth Ambassadors – the faith of the movement at home and internationally. Every year, new athletes and young leaders in sport will be selected as mentees and carry the Sport at the Service of Humanity message to new parts of the world.
