Aims and objectives
Project aims to provide participating organizations, participants and other stakeholders with an understanding of the attributes and perspectives of socially responsible and sensible programmes and systems of financial support of young sportspersons with fewer opportunities, especially those coming from families with economic obstacles strengthened by the COVID-19 pandemic. Project introduces concepts that enable football clubs to start a transformative process in the way they nurture talents and young players, and in the way they think about social issues specifically. This new way of thinking has the potential to positively impact not only sport club, but also families and communities.
- To create a network of football clubs, sport related organizations and stakeholders that would contribute to the creation of socially responsible and sustainable system of career investment and support of young sportspersons with fewer opportunities;
- To sensitize managers, trainers and staff in football towards social inclusion and to bring closer youth, youth workers and stakeholders in sport through targeted activities;
- To create, introduce, promote and improve the system of financing and support for future champions, and share it as a good practice example among local and international stakeholders.
- Transnational project meetings in all the countries, local outreach actvities, production of a movie, brochure and tool-kit.
