Montagliani joins prestigious Young Leaders Mentorship Program

MIAMI, Florida – Concacaf President Victor Montagliani dedication to instilling positive values in youth through football has been strengthened by accepting the invitation to join the Sport at the Service of Humanity’s prestigious Young Leaders Mentorship Program as a Global Mentor. The Sport at the Service of Humanity is a global movement inspired by His Holiness Pope Francis.

The movement encourages every organization and participant in sport to live, think and act in accordance with the “Sport at the Service of Humanity Declaration of Principles”. The objective of the Young Leaders Mentorship Program – launched in October in Buenos Aires, Argentina - is to promote inclusion, respect and tolerance and to advocate for involvement in communities through sport, helping the youth of today become future values-driven sport role models and leaders.

The decision to become a Global Mentor is the latest chapter in Montagliani’s quest to use football as a way to positively influence youth in the Concacaf region.

“I’m truly honored to be selected as a Global Mentor of the first Young Leaders Mentorship Program, a platform that aligns with our mission at Concacaf of providing access and inspiring youth participation in the sport,” said President Montagliani. “Through mentoring, we can provide an extraordinary opportunity to harness the love for our game to instill social values and skills that will shape the path of young adults for a lifetime.”

As part of Montagliani’s commitment, he will serve as a Mentor to a specially selected young leader through an invaluable 11-month leadership journey with the help of Sport at the Service of Humanity’s guidance that will include monthly interactions between Montagliani and the mentee.

With Montagliani serving such an important role not only as Concacaf President but also as FIFA vice-president, this young leader will have an opportunity to learn from one of the most prominent visionaries in world football.
