ProgViolence - Foundation
YOUTH VIOLENCE PREVENTION PROGRAM
The most disadvantaged neighborhoods in big cities currently suffer from a high index of youth violence, which leads to division and inequality, and dimininshes childhood development.
We support dialogue and critical thinking, both on and off the field, to resolve conflicts and rid communities of violence.
The objective of the program is to use sports as an educational tool to help children, by fomenting integration and social cohesion, and by creating favorable conditions in order to prevent violence. 'The beautiful game,' and sports in general, have become useful and effective instruments to help reduce aggressive behavior among youth.
FOCUSED ON LATIN AMERICA
The youth violence prevention program will be strongly focused on Latin American countries, with an emphasis on reducing aggressive behavior among children and youth, through sports.
