Go into the world and do well, but more importantly, go into the world and do good!
Is an innovative sports approach using an evolving curriculum, learning about different cultures and countries from around the world. From the animals, the people and the environment. The curriculum also uses a holistic approach, and reaches out to kids by introducing them to subjects such as geography, geology, maths, geometry, conservation, history, languages, literacy, social science, nutrition, healthy outlook and habits in a new fun way. Looking after ones self, others and the environment around us in short. Critical thinking and guided discovery are major parts of our philosophy. Giving the children as much responsibility as they can possibly handle, it continues to amaze! Thus enabling them to reach their full potential, both on and off the 'footy' pitch and as men and women of excellent character - Actually having an effect, at the same time making a difference now and in the future.
Our core values aim to help children build self-esteem, engage in constructive social exchange and develop an awareness and sensitivity to the environment they live and play in.
We provide international coaches and mentors to build skills and provide young people with a positive outlook on life and the future. This includes teaching young athletes skills and techniques, as well as the importance of health, for them to become mentors for young people in their communities. We hope to 'recycle' some of these young people and hope to see them alongside us, teaching in the not too distant future.
soccer2educate founder Paul Gibbons is the head coach of this programme and was asked to oversee and develop the curriculum that was used for this highly successful programme in Botswana. In July 2010, 2011 and 2012 Paul spent time working with over 650 local children over a 3 day camp, coaching them soccer and in the process instilling positive and invaluable skills that they can take into their own future.
The success of this program has led to us delivering the program here in Southeast Florida to have a better understanding of the worlds and indeed states endangered and natural wildlife. A cultural exchange of the highest quality. We help over 200 local children per week !!!!!!
