Our Young Coach Education Programme in Prishtina and Kamenica (March – September 2009) trained 41 Young Coaches in four modules of four days each. The project’s main focus was to set up and support girls‘ and women’s football and to promote integration of Albanians and Serbians in Kosovo.

The then “Football Clubs for Development and Peace” partnership conducted in 2009 together with its partner clubs FC Basel 1893 and SV Werder Bremen as well as with the local project partner FK Prishtina (today FC Prishtina) four modules in Kosovo. The intention of this project was to foster the integration amongst Albanian and Serbian children and youth. The partner clubs’ instructors educated youth at 15 years of age in theoretical and practical lessons to become children’s football coaches. The education programme consisted of various football training sessions for girls and boys of an Albanian and Serbian school, which were conducted in mixed groups. Furthermore, the Alliance successfully supported the FC Prishtina during the set up of a girls’ and women’s team in Kosovo.
A thorough evaluation of the programme in Kosovo revealed that the 41 Young Coaches passed on the education to around 80 peers. Their outstanding social work sustainably benefited some 1,200 children.
