Marcet Foundation joins the Alcantara Family Foundation’s social and sport project to promote personal development and social integration of young people in vulnerable situations. The signed agreement will allow the Alcantara Team BAC to have perfect facilities for the correct practice of football.
Sport favours the development of experiences based on positive values
As part of its mission for personal well-being and social development, the Alcantra Family Foundation recently launched the Alcantara Team BAC, a social and sport project for young boys participating in the hosting and integration project of the foundation itself together with BarcelonActua (BACstation). The foundation understands sport as an instrument to be used in the service of life, a scenario in which to develop vital skills that enhance the personal and social growth of the participants. For this reason, the principles of this project include the transmission of values, work from a psychosocial perspective and the creation of meeting spaces for social interaction.
Marcet Foundation’s vocation is to give young people from all over the world the opportunity to experience sports training from a vital point of view, connecting three key points: sports training, academic training and human values that -thanks to sport- are able to impress themselves strongly on all of their students.
Our values define who we are
In a special talk held within the framework of the agreement signing, Mazinho, patron of the Alcantara Family Foundation, addressed the students of the Marcet academy and the players of the Alcantara Team BAC, pointing out that: “each of us is a reflection of our humility, our effort, our work. We are the values we represent”.
One more step towards their social integration
The fantastic sports facilities of Marcet will be the setting in which, weekly, the young players of the Alcantara Team BAC will enjoy their training sessions. Led by two coaches, each session will become a development platform, not only for football skills, but also for individual and collective emotional skills.
The signing of this agreement is a starting point for the teamwork between the Alcantara Family Foundation and Marcet Foundation to promote the values of sport and work with young people for their social integration.
