The rate of unemployment among young people in France is more than double that of the overall population. Perhaps more concerning, the unemployment rate among French adolescents aged 20-24 has not fallen below 16% in almost 30 years.


Sport dans la Ville (SDLV) is the leading French non-profit organisation serving disadvantaged boys and girls, aged 7-25, through sports programmes and vocational training.


Its free football programmes teach positive values such as teamwork, hard work, self-confidence and dedication, leading young people on the path toward a brighter future.


SDLV’s football sessions combined with professional skills training and job placement programmes move young people from unemployment to opportunity.
