Social Inclusion Program in New York Public Schools
Partnership with public schools
The Barça Foundation has developed a program to promote the inclusion of children with functional diversity. The FutbolNet methodology is applied to Physical Education sessions in public schools in the districts of Queens, The Bronx, Brooklyn and Manhattan. The Foundation supports at-risk pupils through education in values and social skills, with the aim of contributing to a more equal and inclusive society.
To this end, Physical Education teachers at schools were trained in the FutbolNet methodology, in order to promote student autonomy and emotional well-being.
