Welcome

How can we bridge social and educational gaps across a nation? How can we manifest the power of sport to transform communities? Who do we need to collaborate with to ensure sustainability? What does positive youth development look like?

These are the questions we ask ourselves every day in our sport for development efforts.

The relevance between positive youth development and civic engagement is evident, but not enough employed. Ever more disparate societies desperately require a shift in focus towards social capital and the productive value of relationships within our societal networks; for true value, true meaning, true unity.

Youth aged 16-17 – a force to be reckoned with. Bright-eyed, innovative, willing and raring to embark on adulthood. Aurora for Training and Development was established to equip these young hopefuls with the skills necessary to drive change and unlock the limitations of our social development outreach.

The Aurora Model for Youth Development is a unique approach which twins sportsmanship with civic engagement for professional, sustainable and meaningful development.

Welcome to the New Age!
