Youth-led Street Sports For All — Jordan Youth Innovation Forum (Jordan)
About the Project:
The Youth-led Street Sports for All encourages the participation of underserved Jordanian youth in sports, and teaches them life skills through sports to promote long-term social change. The project objectives encompass providing youth with capacity building, leadership skills, and sustainable development competences and include underserved communities in sports. The project target groups include coaches (120 coaches, 50% of which are females), and the participants (9,000) with at least 50% from underserved communities. The project methodology emphasizes non-formal teaching methodologies and incorporates activities that include training of coaches, weekly sports practices for underprivileged youth, and interactive workshops for skills development with linkages to Sustainable Development Goals.
