HATTRICK Project: Football - Learning - Integration
PROJECT NUMBER – 502368-LLP-1-2009-1-AT-GRUNDTVIG-GMP
It is one of the main concerns within the EU, to improve the integration of people with a migrational background in educational systems, the labour market and society at large.
Migrants tend to be significantly lower educated than the average population, much more often affected by unemployment and excluded from many social activities. Young male migrants in particular are at risk of becoming early school leavers and/or unemployed. As a result these young people are often at risk of social exclusion. The Hattrick project: Football-Learning-Integration utilizes the potential of sports activities – especially football – as an instrument to minimise these risks.
Hattrick seeks to engage socially disadvantaged young men - especially young male migrants – in educational activities by reaching them in the football clubs.
Football clubs are explored as possible new places of learning through a two fold training strategy:
