Our Mission Statement

 

From sport to employment

 

For 20 years, Sport dans la Ville has been the main association for integration through sport in France. All the programmes set up by Sport dans la Ville help to promote the social and professional integration of the 7,000 young people registered with the association, by actively participating in their progress and personal development.

 

A DECISIVE SOCIETAL IMPACT

 

Sport dans la Ville intervenes at the heart of the priority neighbourhoods of the City Policy. In these landlocked areas, there are many economic and social difficulties. The presence of the Association is a determining factor.

Yacine

Twenty-six years old

Sport dans la Ville gave me the keys that allowed me to open the doors that were closing in front of me. I was accompanied by committed sponsors who knew how to value me, support me and encourage me to persevere. Sport dans la Ville is a promise made to young people that with hard work, rigour and ambition it is possible to succeed!

Chelsea

Nineteen years old

In my life, there is a before and after Job in the City. I now know that doors are open to me, that opportunities are accessible and that one must dare to seize them.

All the leaders of the Association believe in us and in our abilities. I felt accompanied through this program.

Sarah

15 years old

I didn't know anyone at first. Now I have a lot of friends and I'm more open to others. I recommend Sport in the City to a lot of young people because the Association opens a lot of doors!

Maria

12 years old

I played football in clubs and often heard comments about my level as "not bad...for a girl". What I like since I've been on the fields of Sport dans la Ville is that I've never heard that. It's really nice!

Help us transform neighbourhood life and restore equality of opportunity.
