World Federation of Youth Clubs recognizes Field of Life - Stavros Niarchos Foundation

World Federation of Youth Clubs recognizes Field of Life

The World Federation of Youth Clubs (WFYC) Promise Awards recognize organizations around the world doing outstanding work in the field of youth development.

This year, Field of Life Chief Operating Officer Dimitris Giannakakis won the Leadership Excellence award in recognition of his and his team’s work on bringing the vision behind the organization’s creation to life!

Field of Life was born out of the shared vision of Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) Co-President Andreas Dracopoulos and basketball legend Panagiotis Giannakis to provide young people in Greece opportunities to grow and thrive—starting in Giannakis’s old stomping grounds in Nikaia near Athens.

WFYC, which is also a Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) grantee-partner, started the Promise Awards in 2021 to lift up best practices in youth development, highlight the importance of this work, and celebrate the potential of young people around the world.

Congratulations to Dimitris and the entire Field of Life team on this honor!
