This weekend, PPI-CY Program Coordinator Stephanie Nicolas prepares to depart for Bradenton, Florida to participate in her second UNOSDP Youth Leadership Camp.

The United Nations Office on Sport for Development and Peace hosts various youth leadership programs to support young people dedicated to providing their communities with projects aimed to promote efforts like ‘Sport for Health,’ ‘Sport for Persons with a Disability,’ and ‘Sport for Gender Inclusion.’ Through an array of partner organization presentations, leadership tasks, group discussions and other play-based activities, camp participants work on their own personal development as people, players, leaders and coaches.

This year, our very own Program Coordinator, Stephanie Nicolas is headed to Bradenton, Florida for one of this year’s Youth Leadership Camps! Camp participants just like Steph come from all over the world for this incredible three week experience. The camp will be held at IMG Academy, one of the United States’ leading sports academies for tennis, golf, basketball, baseball, soccer, lacrosse, football and athletic and personal training. IMG has trained amateur and professional athletes who have gone on to win national tournaments, world championships and Olympic medals.

The entire PPI-CY office is so proud of Steph for being selected to attend UNOSDP’s camp this June! Steph will make an excellent participant with all of her experiences and accomplishments here at PeacePlayers-Cyprus. We can’t wait for her to get back so she can share everything she’s learned. Congratulations, Steph! We’re so excited for you.
