Official FutbolNet Regular Program launches in Utsunomiya!!
Thanks to the cooperation with Global Kids method, which has been organizing after-school daycare service in Utsunomiya, we have been able to host a regular FutbolNet Program in Utsunomiya – as the pilot program since October 2020.
Every Saturday, at a public elementary school in Utsunomiya, children who have been participating in the after-school daycare service and who live near the school (those who applied to the Program through open recruitment) engage in our Program together. As children with different abilities play games together, they can deepen mutual understanding and the five values we focus on. We are planning on continuing this Program until March 2021.
The Official FutbolNet Program takes place at CLARK Memorial International High School!!
As the second attempt of our Project, under the support from the CLARK Memorial International High School, we decided to carry out the FutbolNet Program for high school students. From October to December in 2020, approximately 26 junior and senior students from Yokohama Campus of CLARK Memorial International High School – who are in the Global Sport course, participated in this program to conduct a total of six sessions. They had already been planning and carrying out their inclusive program, “Online sports festival for everyone,” voluntarily. We hope that experiences from our Program will be utilized in their future activities. We would like to continue to contribute to the development of young leaders in various ways.
