Training the Female Sport for All Leaders of Tomorrow
Female Leaders of Tomorrow (FLOT) aims to equip and empower a new generation of young African and European women who are currently working (or volunteering) in Sport for All with the necessary skills, knowledge, experience and guidance to lead the Global Sport for All Movement. Through a comprehensive global mobility and mentoring programme, the participants will strengthen their future employability and enhance their personal and professional development through the acquisition of new skills, knowledge and experience gained through nonformal education and time spent in foreign countries.
Each participant will be part of a trio composed of an African mentee, a European mentee and a mentor (either from Africa or Europe). The mentoring trios allow for the mentees to learn in person and remotely from their mentor’s vast experience and knowledge in the field of Sport for All.
Composition of FLOT Mentoring Trio
Each mentee is tasked with designing their own project to realise during the project lifecycle, with the support and guidance of the mentors and project partners. The project can either be undertaken individually or as a joint effort between the two mentees within the trio and it must be in relation to Sport for All.
More information on the projects can be found here.
FLOT Trios will meet virtually at least once every month to keep in touch, exchange ideas on their projects and ensure objectives and milestones are being met. This is a very important component of the project as it allows the mentors to advise and support the mentees and it gives the mentees an opportunity to ask questions or raise concerns that they may have. As physical meetings are not possible right now due to the COVID-19 pandemic, virtual workshops and online training will be offered to the mentees to assist them in the design and delivery of their individual projects and also enhance their knowledge and understanding of the Global Sport for All Movement.
FLOT is co-funded by the European Commission and is led by The Association for International Sport for All (TAFISA), African Union Sport Council (AUSC) Region 5, European Network of Sport Education (ENSE), The Olympic Committee of Slovenia – Association of Sports Federations (OCS).
