Football training highlights commonalities between people, teaching children tolerance, cooperation, and respect for differences. Embedded in local communities, Champion School uses football training to teach high-risk youth these skills and also discipline, confidence, and leadership. These skills prepare them for literacy education programs and inter-group dialogue workshops.

Champion School has been closely monitoring COVID19 development on the ground in Syria and adjusting our courses and programs accordingly. However, we have also noticed significantly unequal impact on our female students and have been taking actions to counter this effect, including case by case follow-up. We will announce our re-openning and are looking forward to welcoming our students back to our physical classes next year!
