Leaders of the Pitch, soccer leadership program story

This summer EMSA north proudly participated in the Leaders of the Pitch soccer leadership program promoting the development of leadership skills in north Edmonton youth. 21 youth started the program on July 2 and all 21 completed the program on July 19! All participants now have district referee certification, first aid and CPR plus three weeks of volunteer experience to add to their new resumes. Almost all the participating youth went on to put into practice their newfound skills refereeing local games on the North side. It was a pleasure working with Communities United and Edmonton Public schools on this great youth initiative. Click here to read more about this story….
