Guided by the principles of respect, cooperation and solidarity, the street soccer movement is active in 50 countries and uses soccer to teach mediation and peace-building skills to young people living in vulnerable situations, particularly gang-affiliated youth.
Because of soccer’s international popularity, the sport can be an effective tool of social inclusion. Street soccer teaches young people how to make important decisions, cultivates leadership and promotes collaboration with others.
The street soccer movement aims to defend the rights of children, encourages positive youth development and promotes a culture of peace.
