So... What are the Youth Leadership through Sport Programs all about? 

Sports Practice

Program Goals

The Youth Leadership through Sport Programs (YLSP) are funded by the U.S. Department of State/Sports Diplomacy Division and are implemented by PH International and its partners. YLSP aims to inspire, strengthen, and mentor youth athletes and coaches from the U.S. and abroad to be leaders in their teams, schools, and communities. Through the power of sport, youth athletes and coaches will gain leadership and team building skills, develop positive growth and healthy lifestyle behaviors, learn project management and community outreach practices, and develop a greater tolerance and respect for diversity. And to HAVE FUN while doing so!
