About Sport dans la Ville
Sport dans la Ville helps children and young people from marginalized neighborhoods to improve their quality of life thanks to sport, tutoring, vocational training and entrepreneurship. All the sport centers are located in the heart of priority and disadvantaged neighborhoods in order to create a trusting relationship with the young people and to accompany them at each stage of their life, from school to their first job. From the age of 6 years old, sport and discovery programs are proposed and allow to work over time on the behavioral evolution of each young people. The association plans to accompany 12,000 young people registered in 2024.
