The programmes put in place by Sport dans la Ville contribute to the social and professional integration of the 4,500 young people aged between 16 and 20, who belong to the association, by playing an active role in their progress and personal development.
Sport dans la Ville is based in the “urban policy” neighbourhoods of Lyon, Grenoble, Saint Etienne and Paris.
The “Apprenti'Bus” programme organises reading, writing and communication workshops for primary school children registered with the association’s sports centres.
The roving minibus offers 15 one-hour sessions every week close to the association’s sports fields, in disadvantaged neighbourhoods.
Each session brings together two educational specialists (including one young person involved in the national civic service programme) and nine children.
During the school holidays, the minibuses are used for the association’s activities.
