Building Leaders Through Sport: BCSA will share key practices in the use of sport for community development especially when it comes to empowering young positive and influential community based leaders.
BCSA’s ability to transform young people in the townships to key community leaders has helped to change a nation that suggest that township youths have no future. Equipped with life skills, youths can now participate in community programs and have better transferable job skills. Life skills are very important for young people today as it as matter of survival by most young people who face challenges such as HIV/AIDS. http://http://www.commonwealthgames.ca/conference/where-sporting-excellence-and-community-meet.html
