We inaugurated the new football field of the Opera Don Bosco Sampierdarena as part of our commitment to the communities that are among the pillars of the Kaleidos project. It was a two-day event dedicated to sport and to all the young people of Opera Don Bosco, an institute in Genoa that has been committed for over fifty years to taking in and helping young people during the most crucial stage of their growth.
Opera Don Bosco was founded with the aim of taking in and helping the youngest in society, especially orphans or children in precarious situations.
The institute offers many educational and social services, from primary school to lower secondary school and after-school programs, and is a completely free space where volunteers help over 100 children with scholastic activities.
The institute also offers specialized and professional courses for all those young people who decide to follow a vocational path after junior high school.
At the Oratorio Don Bosco, sport is considered an important way of learning values such as friendship, respect, education, and sacrifice. These are the founding principles of the Don Bosco Union, a sports association that represents 2 teams in the amateur championship, a U16 Students team, and the U15 Youths team.
Among many other things, the US Don Bosco Association is affiliated with Next Generation Sampdoria, an affiliate program with the Academy of the Blucerchiati, which aims to pave the way for collaborations between the club and amateur companies by preparing training and further education courses.
