Sports Diplomacy in Vietnam
Coaches Across Continents (CAC) is excited to announce we have been selected as the sub-award partner for the implementation of an International Sports Programming Initiative (ISPI) in partnership with the U.S. Department of State, Women Win Foundation and the U.S. Embassy of Vietnam. This specific ISPI is an international exchange program between the USA and Vietnam to empower the most marginalized youth through sport.
This program provides an opportunity for sports-based, people-to-people exchanges between the U.S.A and Vietnam that advance the goals of building values of inclusion and the leadership of marginalized youth. CAC will facilitate the visit of youth coaches and administrators from the United States to Vietnam in December 2020. The participants will meet with fellow coaches and administrators to engage in workshops and hands-on experiences related to leadership, storytelling, cultural exchange and sport for social change.
In return, CAC will facilitate the visit of youth coaches and administrators from Vietnam to the USA in May 2020 to observe and take part in sport for social change projects their counterparts are involved in. They will learn more about the culture of the US as well as engage in leadership and storytelling activities during the return trip.
The application for Vietnamese coaches to be part of the trip to the USA is now open! Please complete this form here before Friday March 13th for your application to be assessed.
CAC, in partnership with Women Win, is honored to be part of the Sports Diplomacy program of the U.S. Department of State.
