The Sports Creative (TSC) is excited to collaborate with fellow experts in leadership through youth sports- Coaches Across Continents (CAC).
Together we have co-designed a play-based curriculum guidebook which TSC coaches will be able to use in our 6 community programs worldwide in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Villa Hermosa and La Piña, Dominican Republic; Valle de Chalco, Mexico; Doha, Qatar; and Philadelphia, USA.
“We are honored to be given the opportunity to work closely with The Sports Creative. Having known about their unique process for the past 2 years it is clear they offer a level of youth empowerment that has not been seen before in the sport for social change sector. The importance of highlighting the voices and choices of young people can not be underestimated in a world where youth increasingly feel powerless. We are excited to collaborate to enhance each other’s work.”

Called ‘Goals, Voices, Choices’ the curriculum links storytelling activities to On-Field games and discussion which empowers youth with confidence, and supports them to identify viable goals in well-being, education, and their lives.
Following our work on the Rexona BLP The Sports Creative and Coaches Across Continents recognized the potential value of a collaborative capacity-building model leading to this partnership.
“This new curriculum offers a powerful positive development path for youth, based on their goals, voices, and choices. To play safely and inclusively, be heard and valued, and have choices and agency through opportunities. These core experiences increase self-awareness, self-esteem, and social skills; learning problem-solving and collaboration; experiencing community and connection; and building compassion, purpose, and resilience.”Dr Renée Pirkl
