The Young Boys “family”

Young Boys Academy, Tanzania originate from the Danish football organisation Young Boys FD build on top of the football club Silkeborg KFUM.

Young Boys FD (Football Development) is a Danish football organization built on top of an old Danish YMCA-football club: Silkeborg KFUM (established 1918). Even though we are a modern organization; much of our work is built on top of the “old” YMCA-triangle: Body, Mind & Spirit.

Young boys’ main focus is to develop young talented football players even more. Not only on the pitch (body) – but also outside the pitch. In Denmark we also train the players to become successful in business (mind); but some of the players will also be integrated in the development work with Young Boys Academy in Arusha, Tanzania. They will from Denmark through Young Boys FD work to support and finance Young Boys Academy – and some of them will be visiting the Academy in between two seasons as an inspiration for the young boys at the Academy.

Where our Danish football organization is focused on players (young men) between 18- 25 years, our Academy in Tanzania will focus on boys from 10-18 years. The Young Boys Academy will offer talented young boys from Tanzania a full sponsorship with:

  • First class schooling
  • First class football training
  • Plus, a unique opportunity to develop as a person
