Through specific exercises in free football-training sessions, young people develop and improve their social and professional skills and thereby increase their chances of obtaining a training place or entering working life. We are thus promoting a sustainable and equitable integration into society.
Football being the world’s most popular sport offers our supervisors an effective tool for reaching young people from communities that are sometimes difficult to access. Playing football together allows a trust to develop in an uncomplicated way. Kicken ohne Grenzen’s supervisors know the players’ personalities and talents, which means that they can act as intermediaries between the young people and work, education and training opportunities in a targeted way.
The forms of learning we use are playful and focused on motoric skills, and the individualised, pedagogic approaches prove to be attractive alternatives for our target group. The players gather positive experiences, strengthen their self-confidence and discover their potential. They gain independence and acquire social competencies such as teamwork skills, which are prerequisites for successfully starting a training course and a career.
