Celebrating Youth Day and Olympism in South Africa

YOUTH SPORT LEADER FOCUS 2019: Ms Raedene Lucas, Youth Sport Leader and Activate Member

Youth Day, which honours the school children whose lives were lost during this uprising in 1976 during the fight for equal human rights, freedom and justice, brings us into reflection of this historic day in South Africa’s democracy. The Foundation for Sport, Development and Peace would like to highlight one of our very own Youth Sport Leaders, who has started to take the values of Olympism (Respect, Friendship and Excellence) into the spectrum of Community Development using Sport, as a conduit. Ms Raedene Lucas, a recent graduate of the University of the Western Cape’s Post-Graduate Diploma for Sport, Development and Peace, and a member of the Activate! Youth Network for Change Drivers, assists in community and leadership development through Activate Programmes for youth members between 20-30 years old, in multi-sectoral initiatives.
