Description of the cooperation
The goal of the long-term cooperation is the joint development of a coaching programme and the construction of Safe-Hubs in social hot spots worldwide. Programme development has already been successfully completed. The joint coaching programme is already used in practice and provides training for up to 4,000 children and young people weekly. It promotes the communication of a general value system and social skills, and the holistic training of coaches.
The effect of the ‘Go for it!’ coaching programme is regularly evaluated and the programme is continually developed. The success of the two Safe-Hubs in Cape Town is already clearly visible: This is highlighted in the official statistics of South African police and the evaluation reports of Cape Town’s University of Western Cape:
After successfully using the coaching programme in the two Safe-Hubs in Cape Town, the cooperation partners intend to establish additional Safe-Hubs in social hot spots worldwide.
