Female Leaders of Tomorrow

“Female Leaders of Tomorrow” aims to equip and empower a new generation of young European and African women who are currently working (or volunteering) in Sport for All with the necessary skills, knowledge, experiences and guidance to lead the global Sport for All Movement. Through a comprehensive global mobility and mentoring scheme, the participants will strengthen their future employability and enhance their personal and professional development through the acquisition of new skills and knowledge gained through nonformal education and time spent in a foreign country.

The project brings TAFISA together with 3 partners: the Olympic Committee of Slovenia Association of Sports Federations, European Network of Sport Education and African Union Sport Council Region 5. 

Activities are fourfold:
