Pakistan Youth Development and Life Skills Through Sports

This project trained 20 sports coaches from different areas of the Swat District.  These coaches were jointly identified with the local government District Sports Officer, and represent a number of different sports (Football, Cricket, Volleyball, Hockey etc).  The coaches were trained in youth leadership and development through sports activities. Once they were trained, each coach was to give a month long training program to their teams of youth players, covering aspects of youth leadership and development, including communications and perception, competition, collaboration and negotiation, conflict analysis, managing emotions, reconciliation, trust, and forgiveness, mediation, and consensus-building.
