Home The association Home Mission and impact
For 24 years, Sport dans la Ville has been the leading association for integration through sport in France. All the programs set up by Sport dans la Ville, enable the social and professional integration of the 10,000 young people registered with the association, by actively participating in their progress and personal development.
To have a strong immediate impact on young people, Sport dans la Ville is reaching out to them by setting up and offering its activities in the heart of their neighborhood.
" Going towards them " is an essential step to create contact and proximity, in order to create a real relationship of trust with each one.
The continuity of action and support over time (from 6 to 25 years) is a determining element of success. Being at the side of young people throughout their life as children and adolescents, and being able to support them in their first choices as young adults constitute a major component of Sport dans la Ville’s curriculum, which has a significant impact on professional integration programs.
The setting up of outings and “discovery” experiences, in order to allow young people to get out of their daily environment, creates leverage to inspire them: the desire to surpass themselves, the desire to believe in their own chances of success, the desire to work.
Sport dans la Ville intervenes in the heart of underserved areas determined by the French State. In these territories there are many economic and social difficulties. The presence of the Organization has a decisive presence in these local communities.

Sport dans la Ville gave me the keys that allowed me to open the doors that were closed to me. I was guided by committed mentors 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!

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

I played soccer 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 such a comment. It's really nice!
The law for the freedom to choose one's professional future of 5 September 2018 makes equal pay for men and women an obligation of result for companies. In particular, it requires them to calculate their gender equality index each year, in order to assess the differences in pay. This index, in the form of a score out of 100, consists of four indicators (for companies with between 50 and 250 FTE employees), which assess inequalities between women and men in companies: the pay gap, the gap in the distribution of individual increases, the proportion of female employees who receive a pay rise when they return from maternity leave and the number of women and men in the ten highest paid employees.
For the year 2021, the result is 84 points out of 100.
