A staff member of the Sheffield Wednesday Ladies team is heading to Korea to deliver a special football leadership course.
Alicia Johnson, the club’s Under-10s manager and member of the Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA Youth Council, is going to Korea as part of the United Nations Office on Sport for Development and Peace's 12th Youth Leadership Programme.
The goal of the camp is to bring together outstanding youths involved with organisations that use sport for development and peace for two weeks to build friendships, share best practices and develop leadership skills which they can use to inspire and invoke change.
Alicia said: “We will be delivering a Changing Lives Football Leader Course for two days on the programme. I am thrilled to have been chosen to be part of the team going from England across to Korea.”
The camp includes facilitators from leading organisations from around the world, including the International Paralympic Committee, the International Table Tennis Federation, the International Swimming Federation, Korean Air, World Taekwondo Federation and the Football Association.
Everyone at SWLFC and County FA are delighted that Alicia has been given the opportunity to take part in such a prestigious international event.
