Sports and Achivement Academies with Real Madrid Foundation

The International Studies Foundation and the Real Madrid Foundation have created the Sports and Achievement Academies in the US for children with limited economic and social resources.

The program’s objective is to enhance the student’s education in life values as well as their soccer training. Participating children will also learn about moral values, gender equality, social integration and healthy habits.

In collaboration with the Real Madrid Foundation.

Currently, the Sports and Achievement Academies Program is being developed in two public schools of Florida for underprivileged children between the ages of 7 and 13. The academies are completely free for all the 120 children who take part in the Program.

These schools are located at the Ernest R. Graham K-8 Center in Hialeah and the Kensington Park Elementary School. With the collaboration of the local government, this program will also be implemented at the Kendall Campus (Miami Dade College).

The Program is designed to offer children the opportunity to enhance their education in sports and moral values in partnership with one of the best soccer organizations in the world.

The project is sponsored by Fundación Mapfre. LINK
