The Global Sports Mentoring Program provides one-month mentorship experiences. The experiences focus on empowering emerging leaders to serve their local communities by increasing access to sports and opportunities for sports participation. Additionally, mentors help participants to grow their management and business skills in an American sports environment.
The GSMP consists of two pillars: Empower Women through Sports and Sport for Community. Over the duration of the program, participants will develop a sports-based action plan to address a need or a challenge facing girls and women or people with disabilities in their home country.
Participants must demonstrate leadership skills and have experience in the sports sector. Candidates are typically between 25 and 40 years old, proficient in English, and have three or more years of work or volunteer experience with a sport-based development program/organization.
There is no application for GSMP. Participants are nominated and selected annually by the staff of US Embassies around the world. As a part of the nomination process, each emerging leader identifies a sports-related need or challenge in their home country to be addressed during the program.Read more
