Youth In Action, Short Film – Rio Ferdinand Foundation

NI Hyatt Football Tournament 2021: The initiative was part of the Youth In Action programme, in collaboration with the Rio Ferdinand Foundation and UEFA Foundation with the aim to train and support young people by developing leadership skills and taking a lead in tackling inequality and racism in their own communities in Northern Ireland and Ireland.

15 young people from the Syrian refugee community completed a qualification and worked with the NI Hyatt team, partners and volunteers to deliver a family football and cultural event in Portadown People’s Park.

The short film, funded by the Rio Ferdinand Foundation in collaboration with partners and produced by 906 Film, is being promoted to showcase and celebrate the exceptional work carried out by the group so far. This initiative marks the cornerstone of what is planned to be an ongoing programme of youth led citizenship and social action to create a fairer and more inclusive society.
