The relationship between sport participation and personal, community as well as societal development has recently received increased attention within sport sociology and sport politics discourses. However, despite their importance for Sport-for-Development (SFD) practice, process-based investigations of sport programmes and their potential to contribute to sustainable social competencies have only recently been addressed by sport management researchers. In the context of the Blue Dragon Children's Foundation (BDCF), an international NGO based in Hanoi, Vietnam, this chapter examines the management of social processes in SFD work, with a focus on re-engaged youths as ‘change agents’ and their contributions to community development. We propose a newly designed Framework for Re-Engaged Youth as Change Agents (FREYCA) that highlights the contribution of re-engaged youth workers in the context of sustainable SFD projects.
