A look back on a year rich in projects and successes for the young people of Sport dans la Ville, on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the association.

Looking back on 20 years of Sport dans la Ville

2018 was an exceptional year for Sport dans la Ville , marked by the twentieth anniversary of the association. A look back at the highlights of this anniversary year.

Opening of new sports centres

More than 6,500 young people are registered at Sport dans la Ville, thanks to the opening of 4 new fields in 2018, in Bobigny (93), Chambéry (73), Saint-Etienne (42) and Roubaix (59), bringing to 40 the number of sports centres run free of charge every week by the association.


Development of the Job dans la Ville program

In order to measure the impact of our job placement program, we conducted an impact study with the firm BVA. More than 200 young people who have been enrolled in the Job dans la Ville program for at least two years were interviewed, as well as 300 families. The results were very positive and encourage us to strengthen our actions with young people. Indeed, participation in the program is a real lever in the pursuit of education for young people and has a significant impact on their academic success:

Celebrating 20 years of Sport dans la Ville

Finally, the celebration of the 20th anniversary of Sport dans la Ville brought together young people, their families and the association's partners in two exceptional events in Lyon and Paris:

  • In Lyon, more than 2,500 young people, families and partners took part in an evening show at the Salle 3000. The show retraced the history of Sport dans la Ville through several artistic tableaux. The young people of Sport dans la Ville, who were involved in the creation of the show, played a large part in its success: a musical batucada interlude with the young people who had gone to Brazil, a hip-hop performance by the young girls of L dans la Ville, improvisation by the children of the Apprenti'Bus, testimonials from the mentoring pairs of Job dans la Ville and Entrepreneurs dans la Ville.
  • In Paris, 1,500 partners, young people and families gathered at the Olympia for an evening of music. Hosted by Hervé Mathoux, the celebration of the association's 20th anniversary was an opportunity to showcase the talents of young people: dancers, sports commentators, improvisation, songs... A big thank you to the artists from Universal Music, Sofiane, Thomas Dutronc, Tété, Emilie Deletrez and Gérémy Credeville for their participation.

A huge thank you to all the partners who support us and who have been supporting the 6,500 young people of the association for 20 years!
