Holland Football University founded the FootballEquals Foundation in July 2015. FootballEquals Foundation is our CSR – Project, that we are very proud to share.Within professional youth football there seem to be small chances for talented girls to develop their true potential. Also the signal that it stated is that boys and girls can’t learn from each other when we talk about professional Youth Development!
The fact that in professional boys soccer there are only male professional coaches, and you see a complete failure for diversity at young age. FootballEquals Foundation believes in the power of diversity through football.
Therefore we have launched the first professional academy for boys and girls mixed on talent, perseverance and growth mindset: FOOTBALLEQUALS ACADEMY TWENTE (HOLLAND)
Having linked our living lab with almost 100 players boys/girls to knowledge institutes, we do research on differences and similarities by gender in football!
For us to learn how to create tailormade programs for each individual BUT also to research how we can use diversity as optimum strength.
FOOTBALLEQUALS FOUNDATION, GENDER EQUALITY THROUGH FOOTBALL
‘’IF WE CAN SHOW THE POWER OF DIVERSITY IN FOOTBALL WE CAN DO IT EVERYWHERE’’
