Female Leaders of Tomorrow (FLOT) recently announced the new mentors and mentees that were chosen to take part in the project. After a stringent recruitment process, 20 women from 13 countries in Africa and Europe have been selected to be a mentee in the project. These mentees will be supported by a cadre of 11 mentors.
ENSE is well represented within the overall group. Karen Petry, Teresa Odipo (German Sport University) and Paula Noguera (Tempo Livre) will support as mentors in the project, while Briony Walsh (Canterbury Christchurch), Kaija Ruck, and Caroline Tisson (German Sport University) will join as mentees.
FLOT aims to equip and empower a new generation of young European and African women who are currently working (or volunteering) in Sport for All with the necessary skills, knowledge, experiences and guidance to lead the global Sport for All Movement. Through a comprehensive global mobility and mentoring scheme, the participants will strengthen their future employability and enhance their personal and professional development.
The mentees will be guided by their mentors who have been recruited based on their vast knowledge, experiences, and successes across the Global Sport for All Movement. The 11 mentors, from seven countries in Africa and Europe, are responsible for providing tailored mentorship to ten pairs featuring each one African and one European mentee.
FLOT is co-funded by Erasmus+ and is possible thanks to a cooperation between TAFISA, African Union Sport Council Region 5 (AUSC Region 5), the European Network of Sport Education (ENSE) and Olympic Committee of Slovenia Association of Sports Federations (OCS-ASF).

“Training the Female Sport for All Leaders of Tomorrow” aims to equip and empower a new generation of young European and African women who are engaged in Sport for All with the necessary skills, knowledge, experiences and guidance to lead the global Sport for All Movement.
Through a comprehensive global mobility and mentoring scheme, the participants will strengthen their future employability and enhance their personal and professional development through the acquisition of new skills and knowledge gained through non-formal education and time spent in a foreign country.
This project is led by The Association for International Sport For All (TAFISA) and also includes ENSE, as well as the Slovenian Olympic Committee and the African Union Sports Council Region 5.
Through this scheme, mentoring trios comprised of one mentee from Africa, one mentee from Europe and one mentor (either from Africa or Europe) will be created. These trios will share knowledge and experiences, the mentees will work on a collaborative project, and each mentee will participate in three international, face-to-face mobility activities
As part of this project, ENSE is looking for two European mentees from within its network to take part in this mentorship scheme. Due to the difficulties created by the Covid-19 situation around the world, the application deadline has been extended to May 1, 2020. Application documents can be sent to info (a) sporteducation.eu.
Please note that mentees need to be affiliated with current ENSE member organisations to be eligible (see our members here). Individuals from other organisations will not be considered at this point.
Mentees are expected to fully comply with all project Guidelines and are asked to submit a completed Application Form and Letter of Support when applying.
